Habits are the pixels of your life. The picture they create is the reality of who you are. If you don't like the image, change it pixel by pixel. Don’t be intimidated by yoga terminology, yoga studios and complicated poses. Yoga is for everyone. You don't just wake up and become the butterfly-growth is a process. Many people think that they need to be flexible to begin yoga, but that's a little bit like thinking that you need to be able to play tennis in order to take tennis lessons.

Starting with smallest changes, slowly but surely you will change the whole picture. Yoga is not a work-out ,it is a work-in and this is the point of spiritual practice to make us able to open our hearts and focus on awareness so that we can know what we already know and be who we already are. •Why is 21st June celebrated as yoga day?
