This sequence was highly requested! Here is it with some tips from me:
*Flexibility Tip #1*
If you label yourself inflexible, notice if the voice in your head telling you, “you’re not flexible” is a mean one.
One of the biggest aspects a comprehensive yoga practice (that’s often overlooked) is observing your own thought patterns and working to eliminate any negative self-talk.
*Flexibility Tip #2*
Remember that flexibility takes *time.* It’s only through a consistent, on-going practice (with a focus on the long term) that your body will adjust.
Do your practice consistently because you love it and it enriches your energy and mind (aka get addicted to yoga for all the right reasons) and suddenly you’ll find yourself in pose 6-months down the line that you never thought you were flexible to do.
You’ll just slip into it.
It’ll just happen.

Remember that flexibility is relative. I feel highly inflexible when comparing myself to the gymnast yogis on Instagram and ballerinas at my dance class. Even I have to remind myself that the goal isn’t to look a certain way, but to feel good in your body. Flexibility should be about your well-being, not vanity (although it’s definitely fun to have goals).
Yoga is about a balance of flexibility, strength, breath, centered-ness.
It’s likely that if you think you’re really stiff, you’re very strong in other areas (physically, mentally or both). Flexibility is just one aspect of the practice.
This yoga sequence for inflexible people is designed to help stretch the major muscles in the body and get you ready for a deeper, fuller, yoga practice. This is perfect if you’re a beginner, new to yoga or just consider yourself very stiff. Remember, the body opens slowly. Stretch consistently and you will see results over time 🙂
