Yoga is not just about Flexibility!
How flexible do you need to be? Do you want to be in Cirque du Soleil? Or just be able to play with your kids or grandkids? Golf? Play hoops?
Yoga is an excellent way to increase your range of motion and keep your body in motion. How flexible you want to be depends on what you want your body to do. So many people feel like they need do be able to walk over into a backbend or stand on their hands to be a yogi. For the very flexible, yoga is much more challenging as they can injure themselves if they push to their limits and beyond. The hyper mobile need to stop and take notice if they are pushing past their range of motion. It is hard to stabilize a joint at less than full range of motion. This practice is not about doing a pose but more about what you find...inquiry and exploration...while in the pose!
