"Yoga is the practice of quieting your mind." -Patanjali
When I first heard about yoga I was skeptical. Albeit, I was 18 years old and skeptical of most things that my mom was in to, but that is neither here nor there. My mom had been going regularly to this class at the YMCA where she was learning about touching her toes, standing on her head, and being present in her body. After she had been going for about 3 months, I began to notice that she did seem more flexible, more optimistic, and even taller. So, I decided to do a little more investigating.
