I'm SUPER excited for this month's Ask Me Anything!!!   There is a common misconception in yoga that if you can't do a pose, it's because you're not trying hard enough or doing something wrong. This could not be further from the truth!!!! Many poses are simply not appropriate for our bodies. This can be due as much to proportions (which we can't really change! Sorry bones) as flexibility and strength. Further to that, muscle length also plays a role.    People often get discouraged when they come to a class and "can't do" a pose, but may I let you in on a little secret?! Yoga poses should work for us, not the other way around! Every single posture is possible for every single body, it just may not look like exactly like that IG pic you saved (and thank goodness). But the pranic effect (the energetic effect) and the intention can remain.   In this AMA, we'll chat about (but not limited to): - Modifications for common poses (pop what poses you'd like to learn about modifications/variations here in the comments) - What's the difference between a variation and a modification? - How do you handle a situation when a teacher is pressuring you to do the full pose, but you know you need to modify? (hint, hint: you do YOU) - Many modifications require props. What do you do if you don't have any at home? Or the studio doesn't provide them? - And of course, anything else YOU would like!!!!!   Can't wait to read and answer all your Q's! Pop them here in the comments section and I'll be back here NEXT Wed 10/20, 2p PT to answer!!!!
