First and foremost - Consult Your Physician. In most cases they will give you a go but sometimes there are conditions or certain poses your doctor will tell you to avoid based on your muscles, health history or chronic issues you might have. 
Yoga is a healer to the body - rehabilitation therapy. If your body needs healing in an area, yoga will help. But always talk to your doctor before starting any kind of new activity.

Talk to me. Let me know of any injuries or conditions so I can be aware and instruct you based on your personal bio-mechanical individuality. 

Hydration

Bring at least two 8 oz water bottles to class.

Make sure your daily water intake is at least 32 ounces per day or half your body weight. Up your water intake during the warmer months.

Drink at least 16 ounces of water or a sports drink at least two hours prior to engaging in yoga.

Wear sweat-wicking and microfiber clothing designed specifically for absorbing sweat. These fabrics will help absorb sweat and keep it from staying on your body, which can cause overheating and speed up dehydration.

Avoid excessive caffeine and alcohol 24 hours prior to class. Both of these substances can lead to excessive fluid loss and dehydration. Caffeine constricts oxygen to your muscles and heart. Alcohol dehydrates you.

Bring water with you to yoga class. Try and drink 8 oz. for every 15 to 20 minutes of activity.

Drink sufficient water post-class, supplementing with a sport beverage with electrolytes or an electrolyte tablet post-workout if needed. Salt packets can also help you retain lost fluids.

Drink 8 ounces of water for every pound lost during exercise is great way to ensure you are getting enough fluids.

Not all intake has to come from drinking water - vegetables and fruit are also a good way of making sure you're hydrating properly.

Tip: Set a timer for every hour to remind yourself to drink 4 - 8 oz of water throughout the day until it becomes habit.

Get a yoga mat. TJ Maxx sells them for around $12. Once you get going you can invest in a more expensive mat. Make sure it's long enough for your height. The thickness of cushion doesn't really matter at this point - it's your preference.

Bring a long towel for your yoga mat and small hand towel to have alongside you during practice. An extra towel for drying off after class would be a good idea too.

Choose clothes that you are comfortable in. Don't go TOO baggy - you don't want to fight with material during poses. Keep in mind what the clothes will do and where they'll go if you are turned upside down or have legs splayed in different directions. A long tank and capris are usually a safe bet.

Come with an empty stomach. If you must eat, eat light - fruit, veggies and plenty of water. There are many postures that compress the stomach and twist the digestive system in many ways making a full stomach uncomfortable and the poses more difficult.

Prepare your mind. Come with an open heart, willing attitude, joyful intention and an expectation to be challenged and worked from head to toe, inside out. Yoga will be something you look forward to doing. It's a moving meditation. A place of bliss, relaxation, rejuvenation and can be spiritual. Your body craves wellness. It starts here. 

I'm excited to have you join me and am honored to guide you.

Namaste~
