We all have our own ideas of what flexibility means. Here’s a definition from The Free Dictionary
The common misconception for people who are new to yoga is that you need to be flexible to do yoga. Which isn’t quite true, you do need to be flexible but not in the way that you think. Most people who are new to yoga feel intimidated or self-conscious about their flexibility or lack thereof. In these situations it’s the physical flexibility I’m talking about, the ability to be bent or flexed repeatedly without injury or damage. The most important thing to understand is that flexibility begins in the mind, whether new to yoga or not, as long as you are adaptable and responsive to change then the rest will come. With an open mind and open heart anything is possible.
