It's Never Too Late...
By Barbara Schuette on September 16, 2021
It is this famous quote above that I have referred back to several times on my yoga journey. When I began my yoga practice in my mid-forties, of course I thought I was too old. Too old and I started too late. Well I am here to show you the possibilities!
Did I ever imagine doing full fixed firm or standing head to knee pose at age 46? No way! And what about that 3rd part of Awkward Pose—woohoo-!! That one can seem hard on the ole’ knees, but here I am bouncing at the bottom as I hold on to my imaginary box and let that ball roll down my thighs to my mat! For several years I kept trying and got better and better until finally I was doing all expressions of the postures with ease (not perfection mind you!)
We all have setbacks. We all have days when we just don’t have our groove. We all feel from time to time like we are too old, too sick or maybe it’s too late for me to start something new. Or maybe I don’t deserve this, I’m not good enough.
The Hot 26 series teaches you to be honest with yourself and give yourself the space you need to grow and thrive. This practice attracts people with limitations. It is for EVERY body! Embrace your present self physically + mentally + spiritually and "Start Where You Are."
It is quite possible you haven’t reached your fullest potential—yet!
