Who's doing Yoga
Yoga isn't a practice that applies to one type of person; it is a practice that invites all people to share in one common idea. To honor the body that carries our spirit around the marvelous earth. The practice opens up the heart, clears the mind, and renews the spirit. Being a person is sharing who you are and the things you do with other people. Being "just the way you are" is your special gift to others.
