Many people are intimidated by yoga classes because they feel they’re not flexible enough or their balance isn’t strong or there is a fear of group classes. Yes, we all have different levels of flexibility and strength, but one can only improve with practice. During yoga class, people are generally focused inward and are not judgmental on the abilities of others. Some people are simply more flexible but it is important for everyone to work on flexibility, range of motion exercises and balance. Challenge yourself to something new!
