The media representation of yoga is pretty reductive. Talk is all about weight loss and flexibility and images are mostly of improbably skinny and bendy people smiling into the camera whilst doing the splits in a handstand! Images of people being 'good at it'.
This can be a bit off-putting.
Often people will say to me, imagining that classes are only for the naturally flexible: 'I would love to try it but I'm so inflexible, I'd be so bad at it!'
No one is bad at it!!!
