If I’m asked what I do and I say I’m a yoga teacher, inevitably someone says “I couldn’t do yoga, I can’t even touch my toes”. Please let me explain, that Yoga has NOTHING to do with touching your toes, or with flexibility in general. Unless being able to touch your toes particularly suits your body right now and helps you feel easeful and at home in your body enough to be still, relaxed and focused, then it’s irrelevant to yoga. Strangely enough, touching your toes will not make you enlightened, or give you enduring contentment and equanimity. So despite the impression you might get from Instagram and Facebook pictures, please let’s just forget about the imagined importance of touching our damn toes. You are enough already. Come to Yoga just as you are.
