Many people have heard of yoga through word of mouth, the media and advertising. They see beautiful beings gracefully holding their bodies in what seem like strange or sometimes awkward postures.
You may find yourself asking questions:
How do they do that?
Can my body do that?
How is this beneficial for me?
Questioning yoga is good. It means your mind is actively accessing the situation and associating your body to an image of a better you.
Investigation is a good start. Participating is better. Try yoga out. Drop in on a class. Enroll with a studio. Experiment with your body and experience yoga.
