Yoga is now on the menu of many mainstream gyms and health clubs. But even those people drawn to its practice in pursuit of perfect abs can’t deny the spiritual benefits of traditional yoga.
BEFORE WE BEGIN, PLEASE UNDERSTAND: I’m not a yoga kind of person. I’m impatient and easily distracted, and I don’t like sitting on the floor. I’ve never experienced proper deep breathing (though I am well acquainted with hyperventilation). I’m pretty certain that this world is all there is, and, until recently I made my way through it by gritting my teeth and just getting on with things.
