Do I Need to be Flexible to Start Yoga?
Definitely not ... yoga practice builds flexibility. The yoga teacher Richard Freeman once said that "the advantage of being inflexible is that you don't have to go as far to find meaning."
Is Yoga Safe?
It's definitely safe. Listen carefully to the teacher's instructions, follow them as closely as you can, and stay attuned to the feedback of your body. Everything in class is optional; you're always welcome to back off or stop completely. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Other students are certainly wondering about the same things.
