From Sarahjoy: How you begin a yoga practice matters greatly. As a yoga teacher and long time yoga professional, I have heard hundreds of students new to me who tell me that they have been "doing yoga on-and-off for 30 years, mostly off". I've also met people who said they tried it, but it wasn't for them. If you have a body, yoga is for you!
What can make the difference is the teacher, the context, and the community in which someone begins a practice (or returns to one with beginner's mind).
Here at the DAYA Foundation, our teachers have decades of personal practice and teaching experience. They've helped thousands of people begin, sustain, and deepen a yoga practice.
As we all know, the practice is life-changing. It literally can change our lives from fatigued to vital; from living in pain to living with mobility and ease; from anxiety to mental wellness, and more.
