Yoga is indeed accessible, although one need not learn all the available
asanas. The trick is to find a good teacher who is willing to teach you
one-on-one. Attending group classes does not serve the purpose. Kerala is
renowned for its yoga teachers and you should not have any difficulty
In addition to doing pranayama in the morning, I spend about 15 minutes on
the still cycle every evening. Still cycle, contrary to its reputation, is a
very good means of getting brisk exercise.
