What is in a basic yoga class

has anyone ever taken a yoga class? What do they include? How long are they? Is there a need to warm up and cool down?

  • I love yoga. Once you get used to what its about, you will see its a whole mind/body experience. If you're taking basic yoga, the room will be darkened, soft music, and usually something nice smelling, like incense. The teacher will instruct you, call out poses, using their correct name and she will show you how to do it. She will do a warm up routine with you, and a resting routine at the end. My class was an hour. You can buy a cheap mat for $4 at the dollar stores. And you'll be barefoot while doing it. Wear loose clothing and not a shirt that will ride up if you're in an upside down pose.....there may be men in the class also.
