Any answers from staff to the above questions?


Like Linda I am also 53 years old and my brother told me that Beekram (? spelling) is fantastic - I have always been very active and I would love to know if I can find any yoga teacher in Cork City or County who teaches this type of yoga? Maureen


Ease into it. Don't start with complex things, start with the basics.

I am a 53 year old hispanic woman and I would like to begin doing yoga but I don't want to hurt myself.
What do you recommend? thanks, linda
I weighed myself a couple of weeks ago and I weigh 138 lbs.




Sue, be sure to find a highly qualified yoga instructor that understands your condition. Spend a great deal of time researching your potential instructors. I suggest you do the same for a Tai Chi and Qigong instructor. Tai Chi, Qigong and Yoga - when practiced properly - is a very powerful combination of synergestic exercises that will improve your condition and it's underlying causes. But, finding truly skilled instructors is a serious and time intensive process - or, at least it should be such.
