Our preconception of what yoga is (and isn’t) is often a barrier for us even stepping on a mat in the first place and doing something that can be gob-smackingly relaxing and good for us. If this applies to you, and you dismiss even trying the practice because of your ideas about it, then read on, and give it a try!
