This makes it terribly difficult, if not impossible, to do things like bend over or stretch in the ways required by a lot of yoga poses.
I also like the supplement to the classes I’m taking, because I learn the poses and get adjusted in class but learn more about them at home.It’s a million times easier to ask for help in a mainstream sort of class when you’re with another person in the same boat.Dana and I cap off our weekly yoga date with coffee next door and have gotten very close over the past six months because of it.She says reminders like “Yoga is not a team sport.” “Yoga is not a competition.Everyone needs to work at their limit.” She also reminds the class that everyone has different flexibility and that they shouldn’t let their ego get in the way lest they get an injury.And another great “asking for help” moment, I asked my Butch Ironworker Roommate if it was okay to use her room because she’s got the only carpeted room in the house and free wall space for wall poses and she is totally fine with it.
They call it practice for a reason—it’s not ever going to be perfect.
She also knows the difference between you not doing something because you’re at your limit physically or because you’re at your limit mentally and pushes you past your mental hurdle.
She is also good at teaching you alternative poses, showing how to use the tools of yoga (especially straps, blocks and bolsters) to modify poses for different bodies.
It also very much enhanced a recent laycation, so if nothing else, being able to fuck in more interesting ways is a win-win.
So, if you’re at all curious about yoga, I have some suggestions: 1. Sometimes it really helps to have the buddy aspect, not only for accountability*** but knowing someone else might be physically hindered by belly or boobs or is gender non-normative or uses a cane or something as well.
But so far I feel really enthusiastic about what yoga has helped me do with my body.
