You do not have to be skinny. You do not have to be flexible. You do not have to wear the latest athletic gear, nor have any prior experience. What you do need to have is courage. Courage to trust; courage to breathe; courage to believe that you are capable of transforming your body and mind in ways never before imagined. This is the true practice of yoga.”
