Have you ever thought of trying out a yoga class and thought there is no way I can get into those poses? Or I'm no flexible enough to do yoga?
These are thing I hear all the time! And they are definitely not true.
For one, yoga is not about flexibility. It is about creating stability to more to mobility and then flexibility. Chair yoga is perfect for helping people create stability in their poses as you always have the chair there for your support.
And as for getting into those poses, well it is called a yoga "practice" right? I look at my yoga books all the time and think there is no way I can do that. But the difference is that I also then start thinking of the poses I can do that will help to get me to the more difficult poses. Even if you never want to get to the more difficult poses, there is always something to work on in every pose. Even the ones that look like you are just sitting or standing there :)
So why not give yoga a try? If you are worried about flexibility and mobility then chair yoga is perfect for you. And you just need to do what is enough for you and listen to your body. Yet another great benefit of yoga, you learn to listen to your body.
