Understanding the Foundations of Yoga

When I first started to practice yoga, nearly all postures felt very difficult and I couldn’t shake the feeling of not quite being in the right place. At the time, I could appreciate the benefits of yoga but the practice wasn’t quite enjoyable yet. Eventually, I found a teacher who could help me understand the foundations of yoga and how to translate them into my body given its current limitations, such as tight hamstrings.
