It doesn’t matter what you wear to yoga or how you look doing the poses.
After fretting and sweating over what to wear to my first class; the other day I realized that it just doesn’t matter. As long as you are comfortable, its ok that you’re not wearing Lulu Lemon. Its ok that when you work your way into saddle that your shirt tucks into your rolls, people can see your belly when you lay on your back and take a deep breathe, and your shirt slides up and may show your love handles in banana. You know why its ok? No one is looking at you (except the instructor and she’s there to help not judge). They are too worried about getting themselves into saddle, laying on their backs and relaxing, or wiggling into banana. After class the other day I thought to myself, I wonder how I looked in class and then I realized that I couldn’t tell you what anyone else in the class was wearing or what they looked like while practicing because I was focused on my own practice and I am sure that everyone else was too. And you know what? If they were looking at me, they were wasting their money and practice time. I feel pretty special that they would pay to watch me do yoga! I hope they enjoyed the view.
