Yoga is more than just a physical practice - it's about breathing, body awareness, movement, stillness, strength, mindfulness, concentration, and meditation. Coming onto the mat to practice physical poses ("asana" = pose) is just one aspect of practicing yoga. Yoga isn't about handstands or achieving the most difficult postures, it's about the growth your experience as you practice mindfully. It's about showing up for yourself and dutifully dedicating yourself to staying present with breathing and body awareness.
