Whether young, old or too old, sick or lean, one who discards laziness, gets success if he practices Yoga. ... by merely reading books on Yoga, one can never get success. Success cannot be attained by adopting a particular dress. It cannot be gained by telling tales. Practice alone is the means to success.
    Yogin Swatmarama, Hatha Yoga Pradipika
