“Saying you are not flexible enough for yoga is like saying you are too dirty to take a shower.” This quote is buzzing around social media right now.
So at this time of year I tend to find myself traipsing bin bags to the charity shops and selling my surplus hoards of Yoga leggings on eBay. Once those trees start budding I’m in Spring Cleaning Mode!
So those times when Yoga becomes yet another ‘thing’ to do, get done, to go through the motions and hope it counts.
I have been doing a lot of reaching inwards of late. Like so many of you no doubt, I feel time is precious and we are all attuned to fitting as much in as we possibly can.
So many of us come to yoga on a similar theme; I want…. Or I need… The problem with this is that it can become very boring very quickly when we don’t get this ‘fix’ we want.
There has been a huge amount about safety in yoga in the media recently. With all the talk about injury and risk why on earth would you want to go to an intermediate or advanced class?
I hear this all the time. I’m not strong enough. I’m not flexible enough. I don’t have enough upper body strength. My body is the wrong proportions. The list is endless.
It’s that time of year where we feel inspired by all of those wonderful athletes to get on the court, pitch or track and take part. If like me your body isn’t used to this kind of excursion it’s important to take extra care of yourself!
