If you are breathing, then you can do yoga. It is not about being able to touch your toes or stand on your head. Yoga is a journey of the self through the self to the self. Ultimately we practice to reach our highest state of being, Samadhi or ultimate enlightenment. It all begins with an hour or so of meditative movement on the mat. We focus on our gaze and breathwork while we move and suddenly the clutter in our minds is reduced. A deep level of awareness is created that then carries off the mat and into your daily lives.
Begin by taking even inhalations through your nose and even exhalations through your nose. Then start to gently stretch in a way that honors what your body needs. Keep it simple at first.... welcome to yoga!
