Plenty of experts will tell you it takes 21 days to form a new habit — but when it comes to yoga, it's actually more of a lifelong commitment.

In the video above from Buzzfeed, employees at the company try out yoga for the first time in their lives, and — we were happy to see — it's not all ommmms and zen meditation for them. The people in the video have a range of physical abilities, but the one clear connector is that none of them find yoga particularly easy.

Take a look at the video above, and tell us — was this your experience when you started yoga, or another exercise program? Or did you adore it right away?
