Yoga can be done by all ages, young and old and all can enjoy it in their own way. I enjoy it and I love it when I see my grandson in his yoga lotus pose; he is very serious about it.
I am an early morning person and so, before the world gets noisy, I go into my office and put my special "nature's flow" music on and begin a short yoga exercise for the day. It clears and energizes me for the day. I do my balance poses and my stretching and strengthening poses. I love the fact that everyone can develop his or her individual experience with no rigid rules and nobody is there to watch me if I wobble a bit on some poses! I just try to make sure that my routine works for me. I get amused at (and can pronounce) some of the English pose terms that I can identify with like butterfly, cat/cow, pigeon, frog, dead bug, tree, cobra and my favorite, child's pose.
I know that it's good for me but some days, I just don't want to get started. I go on and roll my mat out however and look down at my little yoga friend smiling at up me as if to say, "you can do it and you will feel so good when you are through - now don't let me down." And he's right ....so I begin. Thank you little yoga helper.
