Okay odd question - I normally go to a gym for my Yoga but I've been having trouble lately - one I need a slightly thicker Yoga mat - I'm a big heavy chap and I'm getting some pain in certain positions (load bearing such as downward facing dog) - if I use a Gym mat no pain but no grip - anyone else have this issue and have a fix?
Also - some odd questions as embarassment related - so please read this with humor - doing Hatha yoga recently (first time did Hatha normally do 2 times a week of another class) and changing between dragon poses struggled a bit and had to come out of pose to re-adjust to avoid crippling pain, pinching of sking and the possibility of losing the chance of children while changing lunge.
Does anyone have a type of clothing they prefer for Yoga? material? they can move easily in but supports everything but reveals little? (I imagine the women might have such problems with chests etc). I have clothes which are great for sun salutation but aren't so great for other poses. Part of it is I don't like exposing stomach etc while arching back but need the flexibility across the back and chest (50" inch chest). Suggestions? is there a store which specialises in Yoga like stuff?
My male instructor wears tracksuit bottoms but he's perfectly proportioned - I am not. I'm hoping of course I'm not the only one who feels they aren't a flattering picture in a yoga class!
