Yoga is a discipline and it will do nothing to you if you go in thinking you'll be hip and fit in a few sessions.

Go to a yoga class if you want to build your stamina and strength and improve your flexibility. 

Wearing clothes that make you look good is also a consideration. Choose stylish yoga outfits with color that fits your personality to make you feel good when doing the moves. Tank tops are favorites that are made of materials that breath and with designs that are trendy and attractive. Semi-fitted or spandex pants allow comfort while doing full range of motion movements.
