Yoga is a mystical exercise form that offers many benefits to the body, soul, and mind.  Here are just a few:

It’s about you

As with most other exercise forms, yoga isn’t a competition. Yoga is a work in progress.  It’s about challenging yourself to reach further or stretch longer, etc.

It’s not all about bends and stretches

Part of yoga is about bending and flexibility.  But what needs to be flexible is your mind and how you approach yoga as a discipline.

Use props

The props available in yoga such as straps or blocks do not make you less advanced than others.  Using them means you are aware of your body’s limits.

You can take a break

No one will judge you if you assume the Child’s Pose when it becomes intense or if you choose to have a water break.

It’s not always easy

Some of the poses in yoga are hard.  Be prepared to fail before you succeed, just like everyone else.

It’s not just about your body

Yoga creates a sense of inner peace and mindfulness that other exercise forms just don’t.
