Many people are afraid to try yoga as it can look rather challenging. However, the first thing to bear in mind is that yoga is for everyone! You don’t need to be the ‘right’ age or body size to start.
We often hear people say, “Yoga isn’t for me; I’m not flexible”. Well, that’s the whole point! Yoga will make your body more flexible, and you may even manage to do things you never thought you could achieve. It doesn’t have to be a handstand. If touching your toes is your goal, that’s great; your yoga practice belongs to you, and it doesn’t matter if your mat neighbour can do things you couldn’t even dream of.
Most importantly, regular yoga practice will make you feel better, no exceptions. You may need to find the style or teacher that suits you, but once you do, yoga has the capacity to change the way you live, breathe, and look at life.
Whether you choose yoga for the spiritual aspect or to look fit, regular practice will increase your strength, flexibility, and heart health, and science has started to provide some concrete clues on how yoga is an authentic asset for improving your health; Not convinced yet?
