First Time Yoga

Posted on 105 views

A common misconception that I often encounter is that you have to be flexible to start doing yoga. It’s the same comparison to: ‘I can’t start learning to play guitar, because I can’t play guitar.’ Silly isn’t it!?

Strength and flexibility will come later during your practice, and everybody has their own challenges in this. Remember, it’s the practice itself that counts and the connection that you feel with yourself and the universe. Showing up at your mat is more important than being flexible.

Choose a yoga style that you like. And always tell your yoga teacher if you have (chronic) pains or injuries. Asanas will be adjusted for you! Just breath, you can do this!
