Six years ago at age 29, I could not do a handstand. I could barely hold myself in downward dog for more than a couple seconds at a time without getting winded.
I took my first yoga class at Vitality Yoga in Bayside, and couldn’t keep up with the class. I wondered how I would ever remember all the names of the poses, and how I’d ever build the strength to hold those poses. I was discouraged because of how out of shape I was...but I was determined to stick to *something* for once in my life.
Six years later I took my last class at Vitality, I can stand on my hands and my arms and my head, I can do splits, I can bend and twist myself up like a pretzel. I found strength, and confidence, and spirituality in my yoga practice.
I am so grateful for Vitality Yoga-this studio helped me find a piece of myself that I didn’t know was missing. 💗🙏🏻🕉🧘🏼♀️
So do me a favor and tell yourself today that you can do anything. It will be hard as fuck at the beginning, but little by little you’ll get there.
You can learn to do inversions, you can become a marathon runner, or join a team and play a sport you never knew you’d love.
It’s never to late to try.
