Common Myths & Misconceptions of Yoga
That Couldn't be Further from the Truth
You Have to be Flexible
Yoga helps you become flexible. No matter what your skill level is starting out, a consistent practice will help you improve not only your flexibility, but balance and strength as well.
Yoga is Slow & Boring
There are a variety of different types of yoga classes. At our studios, Restorative, Yin, and Foundational classes that teach the basics are great for beginners and people who want a less rigorous, slow moving practice. However, there are many styles of yoga out there that are faster paced and more challenging for those who are seeking more of a mindful workout.
Yoga is Not For Men
Believe it or not, yoga was actually created by men, many moons ago. Over the years, the number of men who attend yoga on a regular basis has been increasing, which is a great thing because the practice is as equally beneficial to men as to women.
