One truth about yoga is this: Yoga looks different on every body. One version of a yoga pose is not better or more advanced than another. Often, yoga beginners worry about the picture of the pose. They want to do the pose “perfectly.” As with most things in life, this always isn’t possible.
One of the (many) benefits of yoga is when you allow yourself to find the ease in your body and mind, the poses will be a lot easier to do.
