For many, yoga is a path to physical health. A solid, consistent practice can improve your strength, flexibility, coordination—and even your mental well-being. While all of these benefits are appealing, it can be difficult to know how to start your own practice. This is especially true if you’re not comfortable going to a studio.
The image of yoga on social media can be incredibly daunting. Some of the most popular yoga ambassadors are praised for doing acrobatic stunts and complicated stretches (which is awesome for them!). But because of that, sometimes people assume yoga is only for those who are super athletic or flexible—or who are of a certain body shape and/or race.
