Young or old…

Om,

Regular practice of any yoga technique creates a pattern in the body and mind, and after many years of practice, perfection is attained, regardless of the initial circumstances. One should not be deterred from practicing yoga because of feeling physically inadequate. It does not matter if the body is old or young, sick or feeble, everybody is eligible to practice hatha yoga and to attain self-realization. If one has an inner desire to experience the truth of existence one will succeed regardless of physical conditions.

– Hatha Yoga Pradipika verses 64-66

At any point in your life/your yoga practice, it is good to have reminders as this. Be unbound from the constrains that you put on yourself and that seem to be inhibiting the movement forward of your successes.

Namaste
