In our last post we examined the myth that yoga is only for the young and blew it out of the water with Susan Hartely. You can find that post here to learn more about how Susan's yoga has changed over the years and what inspired her to comlete a yoga teacher training at 68!
Today I want to dive deep into the myth that young is only for the thin. Welcome to Part 3 of What a Yoga Body Looks Like.
Last week I shared the most common myth about what a yoga body looks like. You can find that post here to catch up on why we don't all have to be super flexible, as well as how our assumptions and comparisons prevent too many of us from trying yoga at all.
Today I want to share my chat with Susan Hartley, a newly trained yoga teacher at the wonderful age of 68. She has a lot of insight to share about how yoga has changed for her over the past 40 years, and definitely takes aim at the myth that yoga is only for the young. Welcome to Part 2 of What a Yoga Body Looks Like.
There are some pretty strong beliefs (maybe myths is a better term) about who can or should do yoga, and what kind of body is a yoga body. All too often we assume a yoga body looks young, super bendy, super fit, female and all too often white. Those are the images we see most often on the covers of magazines or social media. Thankfully that's starting to change because really, every body is a yoga body. Let's start with debunking most common myth.
