… I’m not flexible.” We’ve all gotten it – the “I can’t do yoga, I’m not flexible” response when we tell people we do yoga.
My usual response kind of stinks, usually a mush-mouthed statement about how yoga is more than just bending and stretching, there’s spiritual, emotional and other aspects and gee, you should give it a try.
I’m working on another response that might just get people out of their, “I’m not flexible” excuse and kick them onto the mat. Something pithy like, “So you wouldn’t go for a jog because you can’t run a marathon?”
What’s your response and how has it worked?
