Please bring a towel, not only to wipe your sweat, but your towel is sometimes used in your exercises. A yoga mat is sometimes nice to have as well--we have a few studio mats available for your use if you'd like, but most prefer to sweat on their own. Please allow a few extra minutes prior to class for station set up. TKO is the total package!
