"one of the most common notions people share with me when they learn i teach yoga is that they think they must be flexible to do it. it seems the pervasive cultural model of a skinny girl in over-priced stretchy pants with her leg wrapped behind her head makes many people assume yoga is not for them.
while that’s understandable, it’s also an excuse. and you know what they say about excuses.
having been around the yoga block a few times (pardon the pun), i’ve come to understand that flexibility is as much about the mind as it is about muscle. so now, when someone tells me they are not flexible enough to do yoga, i say with a twinkle in my eye, “you’re right.” this is usually surprising enough to get their motor turning, and the conversation that follows depends on the kind of person they are. my response is akin to henry ford’s famous quote, “whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right.” i gently nudge them to recognize that it’s the belief that matters."-alison bristow - a very inspiring woman. true, i presented the myth of flexibility and yoga. yoga is the agency through flexibility is improved. don't judge yourself, believe in yourself because you can be the most flexible oerson in the world as yoga improved your ability. remind you :i do yoga because i want to be stronger, fit, balanced, to improve my flexibility and for fun!!! fun is everything! now repost this if you think that you can do yoga if you are not flexible. 💦💦💦🤗🤗🤗💖💖💖😻🙏🙏🙏💥💥🌞#yoga #flexibility
