Going to my first ever lesson this week. Can anyone give me advice on what type of mat, what clothes etc? Thanks.

For a lesson, just clothes.. Loose fitting or activewear no trainers, mats and straps usually provided, but sports direct do a god cheap yoga mat

Check if you can use a mat there - it will be better quality than a cheapo one.

I wear leggings, sports bra and vest - tighter fitting better as you don't want to show your tummy when upside down etc

Thanks all. Will wear leggings and sports bra and vest (complete with bingo wings). Do I need a towel or blanket as I've seen those mentioned on some websites

I take a towel if I am borrowing a mat, its good etiquette to wipe it down after. Sometimes I put the towel under my hands for poses like down dog if I'm a bit sweaty as it helps me grip better and hold the pose longer.

Thanks Bobbie

If you don't take a blanket, have a jumper or something (and socks) for relaxation at the end as your body cools down quite quickly.

I do pilates and don't like to have bare feet. So wear the sports socks with grips underneath. I'm not the only one who wears them.
