The Yogi’s attitude to age is quite unlike the western conception. He believes that the physical body does not finish developing until the age of thirty-three, that even then it may still be remolded and brought to near perfection. Yoga takes each aspect of aging in the human body and works on it through breathing, asanas, ahara (diet), rest, purification, and Samadhi. Yoga has no known equal as a physical, mental and spiritual rejuvenator.
