Yoga is not about tying yourself in knots. It does not matter what you can or can’t do, there is no minimum age or skill level required.
Yoga is the practice of developing awareness through sensing the body via asana, breath via pranayama, mind via meditation.
Yoga gets us out of our head and back into our body.
One of my teachers once said "If you can breathe you can do yoga".
