"If you can breathe, you can do yoga."

One of my favorite yoga teachers used to say this, and I'd chuckle to myself, thinking, "that's cute, but obviously the physical postures are the point of yoga."

I was wrong.  Very wrong.

Yoga unites body and mind through a blend of breath, mindfulness, movement, and more.  While most people consider yoga as merely the physical postures, the physical workout itself is not the primary goal of practicing yoga.  The physical exercise is a conduit to the deeper goal of practicing: awareness.

If you're interested in the physical workout, rock on!  That's how I began.  Read here about my yoga journey.  

Namaste (the light in me sees and honors the light in you),

Yes, yoga is for you, too.

Here are some of my favorite yoga objections and myths, debunked: 

  • "I can't do yoga because I'm not flexible."  

Umm, flexibility is not required to try yoga.  

  • "I can't take a yoga class because I won't know what I'm doing."  

  • "I'm too old." 

  • "I'm too out of shape."

  • "I have an injured shoulder/knee/back/hip/other body part."
