Saying you have to be flexible means you have to go gym and you should get in a shape that you are able to do all the critical position that a beginner can do. There can be relation between flexible and yoga but don’t have to be in a shape that you have to go to gym.

If you want to touch your feet to yoga practice but if you are new at this it may be difficulty. Whether or not you are not flexible over the time as more you practice you can be flexible. So stop believing the myths.

Thin, Young, beautiful:

The image of yoga in America a young beautiful blond thin woman doing yoga taking picture of them posting in social media. This is the attractive image of yoga it can be inspiration of young ladies who want to join yoga. This is not the true image of yoga.

Yoga is a Religion:

There is a lot in yoga things are appear from many religions. But there is spiritual element to practice yoga. But it is important that yoga is not region itself.

It is not required to do in yoga.

Yoga is about stretching:

You have to believe that yoga is not about stretching. When you do proper yoga class with a yoga instructor then you can feel real thing about yoga. 

But while we do the asana (pose) that you can feel sometime stretching. 

Yoga is about “breathe” you have to lot more focus into inhale and exhale your breathe. “The true goal will be to move your body connect with your breathe” so be in present movement. This is why most of the people who are practice yoga regularly they don’t do workout rather than yoga.
