Postpartum Weight Loss- Yoga for the New Inflexible Student

Posted Jan 08 2010 4:57pm

To Sara of Fit by Sara: “I know yoga is great for the mind, body, and spirit, but I’m so inflexible…I can’t even touch my toes.  I’d love to try yoga, but I don’t know what I should do to prepare my inflexible body.  Any suggestions?”

From Sara of Fit by Sara: “99% of people I’ve worked with have told me the exact same thing, they say, “I’m so inflexible, I don’t know how I can do yoga!” The great thing about yoga is you don’t need to be flexible to get started!  Yoga if taught properly always includes modifications such as bending your knees or adding the use of blocks to get into a posture.  Once you get into the groove of yoga you’ll be amazed at how quickly your body adjusts and your flexibility improves.  You’ll also love the look of your new lean long muscles, and enjoy the peaceful feeling you’ll experience at the end of class.  The added benefit of yoga is it keeps your body supple and young.  So no more “I’m too inflexible to do yoga” excuses, give yoga try!” -Sara Holliday, MFT, CPT
