I must admit here, I was a bit stupid. Even though I knew yoga was not designed for strength and flexibility (it’s a BYPRODUCT, not a GOAL), I still thought that going to random yoga classes is going to help me achieve the goals. After all, there are yogis on Instagram that do some crazy stuff.
Well, let me burst the bubble, if you’re in the same place I was. Those people are training for their SKILLS. Regular yoga classes simply don’t cut it.
Things changed for me when I got fed up enough with not seeing any progress that I went on a hunt for teachers that would help me achieve my goals.
After being given a structured plan to follow, I started to finally see my strength and flexibility increasing. How so? Because I was finally training for it. I was able to move through asana transitions more smoothly, arm balances started feeling stable and my handstands were no longer a joke.
