“I can’t even touch my toes!
How can I possibly do yoga?” Yoga is
about body awareness and gradual extension, not simply achievement of
poses. Regular practice will help you to touch your toes! Poses can be
adapted to suit all levels of fitness.
“My back is too sore to do any
vigorous exercise. Can yoga help?” You
will need to discuss your particular injury with the teacher. He/she
will ensure that you only work to a suitable level. Yoga should help to
improve your back in the short and long term.
