Make sure your shorts or pants have a lot of stretch in them to be able to move with your body. Yoga pants, exercise shorts, or sweatpants are great options. If you don’t own any of these, you can use normal leggings. Get an exercise or yoga mat, yoga blocks, and a bolster to use, or any suitable alternative(s). Find a clear space on the floor to lay out your mat to begin. If you are on a carpeted floor, a mat may not be necessary. Fill up a water bottle to keep close.
