Welcome to Clear Reflection Yoga. On this site you will find the Clear Reflection Yoga Blog, information about yoga classes taught by Deb at Purple Iris – Berkley, and related resources I hope readers like you will find interesting and helpful.
Why blog? Too many people are missing out on the benefits of yoga because they think they aren’t thin enough, flexible enough or in shape. Or maybe it’s because they have bad knees, a limited range of motion, chronic pain or are challenged by health conditions that affect their balance or energy levels or the pace at which they move — even how they move.
But I passionately believe that anyone — even you — can do yoga. You may need props and modified versions of the poses, or even to do your yoga in a chair. But, if you can breathe, you can do yoga. I am a 40-something, plus sized woman living with the challenges of multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia. I know there are times when a full “regular” sun salutation just isn’t going to happen. And that’s okay. The point is that you deserve to feel your best (however best is defined on any given day) and to reap the rewards of this amazing practice.
I hope this blog and related resources will inspire you to try yoga or resume a set aside practice.
