I discovered yoga at 56, while recovering from six rounds of chemotherapy and a month of radiation. Yoga let me move at my own pace and to be forgiving of my own body's limitations. After I got some of my strength and flexibility back, I tried several types of yoga--vinyasa flow, Bikram, kundalini, restorative, and hatha yoga. Five years later, I teach hatha yoga, as well as practice daily. The spiritual aspect of yoga, linking breath with movement and meditation, helps me focus on what is most important--acceptance of whatever life has to offer at this moment. Karma yoga--freely offering my practice to those who don't have access to yoga--that's actually my favorite form.
