The truth about Flexibility

Dec 28 / Katrina Petney
In a world dominated by social media, where picture-perfect yoga poses flood our feeds, it's easy to fall into the comparison trap. Our Anatomy Teacher, Katrina, offers a refreshing reminder that not every yoga posture is meant for everyone, and that's perfectly okay. She poses some thought-provoking questions: 

Do you struggle with a particular yoga posture, feeling like it's an unattainable feat for you? Have you heard the common advice, "Keep practicing, and you'll get there"? What if Katrina tells you that this may or may not be the case?
According to Katrina, there's a reality check we all need – some yoga postures might never be in the cards for us, and that's not a reflection of our dedication or flexibility.

For instance, getting your heels on the ground in downward facing dog might be an everlasting challenge, regardless of your practice duration. And attempting a full lotus pose could pose risks to your knee joint.

The crucial question arises: How do you distinguish between a challenging yet achievable pose and one that might not be suitable for your unique body? Is it a matter of technique, strength, flexibility, or perhaps your inherent body structure? Katrina's wisdom points to the most effective technique of all – listening to your body.

In the pursuit of your yoga practice, it's not just about perfecting postures; it's about understanding and respecting the language your body speaks. Join us in exploring Katrina's insightful perspective on navigating your individual yoga journey, where every pose, whether accessible or not, contributes to your growth on and off the mat.
