So what is yoga?
The word "yoga" means union, to join together. You are joining your mind and body to create harmony. The poses one does during yoga not only prepare you for meditation, but are to help calm your mind and let you focus. Some poses you may recognize as being from yoga have been around for centuries, but yoga as a whole has been around for 5,000 years.
Who can do yoga?
Everyone can do yoga. If you have a body and can move some part of it, you can do yoga. Poses are easily modified to meet any needs or limitations people may have. Anything you can do to keep your body moving in some way is always beneficial.
