Saying you’re too inflexible for yoga, is like saying you’re too dirty to take a bath!Unknown but very wise person!
One of the main things I love about yoga is helping people allow themselves to feel good about who they are.
We all have so many pressures on us, so much expectation, and yet with yoga, it’s not about self improvement, it’s about self acceptance.
It really doesn’t matter if you ‘can’t touch your toes’ or are ‘not flexible at all’. Come to the mat to bend a little…or a lot…whatever you need. No one is judging you.
Don’t worry if you’ve never practiced yoga before – that’s amazing! You get to experience everything for the first time, get to see what you’re capable of. That’s an incredible feeling.
Don’t like to wear Lycra? Me neither! Wear what you feel comfortable in.
Having a bad day and ‘exercise’ is the last thing you want to do? Yoga will give you a massive ‘hug’ and perhaps that’s actually what you need.
The list goes on, doesn’t it? The reasons we stop ourselves doing things, the reasons we tell ourselves we aren’t capable. Well, you are. You are capable.
