Point well taken, Amy. Yes I agree, yoga asana may not be for everyone, in it's most
commonly understood form, but remember, asana is really only a small part of yoga.
and one can practice yoga without asana, and still derive benefits. I admit I may have
exaggerated a bit for effect saying my classes are for everyone. Young children would
most likely become very bored in my adult classes, the sick and infirm, would have
difficulty keeping up and other groups would benefit from having specially designed classes, but let's not lump people by age group, "over fifties", "people in their nineties", "middle-aged men", "teenagers". I know there are seniors ninety or better who are capable of participating in yoga asana, as is the majority of people in all age and gender groups.

Namaste,

Edward
