Before you begin to relax your mind and body, make sure you suit up properly by wearing comfortable clothing that won't get in the way of your stretching. T-shirts, shorts, sweats, and tank tops are all great to wear for yoga because their fabric is movable and breaths easily. Jeans are definitely out!
Bare feet are ideal when you practice yoga, both for the traction they give you for standing poses, as well as the workout your feet will get!
One of the most important things you will need is a yoga or exercise mat to use during seated or floor postures. Don't worry if you don't have a special mat, use a firm pillow or folded up blanket—they work just as well.
