I Don’t Have a Yoga Body

Have you said this to yourself? Has your friend invited you to a yoga class but you have resisted because of your body image? Do you think you “can’t do” yoga because you aren’t thin or flexible? That others in the class won’t welcome you or will make fun of you? I too used to think I couldn’t do yoga because I wasn’t flexible enough. For the longest time I was drawn to yoga, but I resisted. I still don't really know what the call was, but it was there. Yes, I'm still a work in progress. Yoga is a practice, and just because I now teach yoga doesn't mean I am perfect. I still have my shadow side that I work with.
