Q. What equipment do I need to open a yoga class?
You will need a yoga mat or two, a couple of blocks and bolsters, straps, and blankets to create a safe and comfortable space for your students. Depending on the type of yoga that you are offering, you may need to provide props such as chairs, sandbags, ropes, or even wall-mounted bars. A stereo with speakers and some background music may also be helpful. Additionally, you will need towels, bottles of water, and additional yoga and meditation items like candles, incense sticks, and essential oils.
