Whenever the subject of yoga comes up with my friends, many of them recoil at the idea of even attempting a class. They tell me that they can’t touch their toes or do the splits or perform a headstand for hours on end while preparing a marinated kale salad. While all of these are nice skills to have, you don’t need any of them to do yoga. The only thing you need is you: your focus, your strength, your awareness of what you need and where your limits lie. Don’t get me wrong, developing a yoga practice probably won’t get all of your troubles to gather their things and briskly walk out of your life, but I do think there’s a place you can find on your mat where you feel empowered and at peace; a place that is uniquely yours and patiently waiting for you, whenever you're ready to look for it. All I'd like to do is help you find that place for yourself.
