Anyone can practice Yoga, no matter what age, condition or religion. Young or old, sick or fit - all can benefit from Yoga.
Yoga, The oldest science of life, can teach you to bring stress under control- not only on a physical level, but on mental and spiritual levels too. The human body can be compared to a car. There are 5 things that any automobile needs to run properly, whether it is a Rolls Royce or a rusty old car - lubrication, a cooling system, electric current, fuel and a sensible driver behind the wheel. In Yoga, the asanas or postures lubricate the body. They keep the muscles and joints running smoothly, tone all the internal organs, and increase circulation without creating any fatigue. The body is cooled by complete relaxation, whilst pranayama or yogic breathing increases prana, the electric current. Fuel is provided by food, water and the air you breathe. Lastly, you have meditation, you learn to control and ultimately transcend the body -your physical vehicle.
In conclusion, I would like to tell you all that Yoga is not a theory but a practical way of life. If you have ever tasted honey, no matter how often I tell you that honey is good for you, you wont understand till you try it. Put Yoga into practice and you will see the benefit for yourself.
