I have been contemplating starting Yoga for years before I started at Tao Of Light. I am usually not one to join group classes, preferring to exercise alone. In fact, I even purchased a Yoga DVD a couple of years ago, but found that to be impersonal and ineffective for my needs. 

My chiropractor suggested that I consider Yoga to help me with my “lack of flexibility” and to help strengthen my back. After all, I am in my 50's and everything was getting a little more difficult to do! Well, I found out about Tao of Light, and signed up for the 4 class pack special. In the back of my mind I had already succumbed to the fact I probably wouldn’t continue. Boy was I wrong! In fact, after taking the 4 classes I was hooked! In the beginning, I was unsteady and “stiff as a board”, but NEVER ONCE did I feel that I was lagging behind the other students. The instructors are exceptional at reminding all of us that we are individuals, to take things slowly, and that at every class to follow your body cues.

It’s been 8 months now, and I am beginning to feel like a new person. I am also noticing that I am now consciously and unconsciously adjusting my posture (I’ve been known to be a bit of a sloucher). I am also becoming more flexible, which I notice when I am bending down to pick something up or reaching for an object in a tricky place. 

Take it from me, it’s never too late to start Yoga. Like I wrote earlier, I am now hooked and will practice Yoga for the rest of my life.

Thank you to all of the instructors at Tao Of Light Yoga!
