If you are over 50 (or over 90), it is the perfect time to start a yoga practice. Now. In fact, the Yoga Sutras, a text with 196 aphorisms compiled around 400 CE begins, “Now, the teachings of yoga.” The word “now” is so imperative. There is no sense of regret, no “Why didn’t I start sooner?” Now is the time you practice. Now is a perfect time.
In fact, if you find yourself in some age you might classify as chronologically enriched, you have even more reason to practice.
