Do you have to be flexible to do yoga?


Yoga is about mindful movement and focusing your attention on your breath as you perform various yoga postures. It’s an attitude of presence and self-acceptance, focusing more on ‘how’ than ‘what.’ Yoga poses are only one part of a larger practice that includes breathwork and meditation. A focus on doing, getting into, or holding yoga postures is not a part of the real yoga. No pain, no gain is the opposite of real yoga philosophy.
