So...somehow I seem to have made myself a deal with @CheerBear that we are both going to venture into the super scary world of yoga next Monday. I'm SCARED!!!! I've been trying to psych myself up to go to a class for about a year and now thanks to a pesky little care bear, it seems like it is going to happen next Monday.
I have my mat and my outfit (and thanks to @Lunar and @Rockpool I know to wear underpants under yoga pants ). Now I just need to find some courage. Hmmm...courage...I'm sure I have some here SOMEWHERE in my shell...
Only six sleeps away. This sounds way too close. Yep, this little turtle is going to need to do some serious psyching up before next Monday!!! All encouragement is warmly welcome.

I found myself wearing my cheer gear for you @Phoenix_Rising
I am about to head out to find myself some yoga gear. This part seems more scary to me than the actual class part but maybe that's because this is actually now and that is later. I'm actually really nervous about needing to work this one but the idea that you have your stuff ready to go has pushed me into needing to get mine too. I got the whole no shoes thing. My next silly question is socks?! I can imagine they might slip around but no socks seems so cold. I'm so glad we can both feel silly together. I feel less silly knowing you're going through it too.
We've got this!

@soul Well I can tell you my yoga outfit is not nearly that bright!!! I'm aiming to look as non-yoga-ish as possible.
@CheerBear I was wondering about socks too. I agree that socks seem slippery and non-socks seem cold. On the website of the place I'm going to there are pictures and the people don't have socks on. I'm going to make sure I wear matching socks without any holes though, just in case.

I think the consensus is no socks. The people I see walking into and out of the yoga studio near me are wearing thongs (as in footwear) not the other thongs 😆

@CheerBear Yay, half-way there!!! Yeah, I'm happy with my choice to go with a top from the men's department. It is a nice simple blue top and the sleeves are long enough for me to feel ok. I am wondering if I should wear a singlet underneath and tuck that into my pants because I am self-conscious of the top riding up when I bend over. I can't decide if that will be too hot though. I guess we are actually going to warm up while we are...er...yogaering and thus won't notice our cold feet. So long as we get cold feet IN the class and not BEFORE the class. I think I probably will get cold feet...but I will make them take me into the class anyway.
