"If Not Now, Tell Me When," by Carrie Newcomer is one of my favorite songs. The song title says it all. When people find out I am a yoga teacher, I somehow bring out the guilt in them and they share with me the reasons why they don't do yoga, or at least...not now. Here are the top four comments I hear:
1. I'll do yoga when I feel better.
2. When my life slows down, I'll come back to yoga.
3. I can't touch my toes.
4. I have chronic "fill-in-the-blank"...
What most people forget is that yoga is a healing modality. What does that mean? It means yoga is a remedy. If you are sick, you would take your medicine to get better, right? That is what yoga does. It helps you breathe through pain, calms you in stressful times, and especially if you have a chronic condition, it helps you bear the weight of that heavy load. Remember, just a few yoga stretches and some deep breathing every day can improve your health - just like your daily vitamins!
