Annakin Slays helps me debunk the myth, "I can't do yoga because I'm not flexible.
I came up with the idea for Yoga Myth Busters on Day 6 of a 10-day Vipassana silent meditation retreat. I'd had my studio for seven years by then and in all that time, the excuses I heard for not trying yoga hadn't changed. Topping the list was, "I can't do yoga because I'm not flexible".
My good friend, Annakin Slayd, came to mind right away. He had told me on several occasions that his lack of flexibility was the main reason he didn't do yoga. I called him up as soon as I got back into civilization and told him my idea for debunking commonly-held misconceptions about yoga. Being the incredibly good sport that he is, Annakin agreed to do the first video with me on one condition: that he could wear yoga tights. So, I agreed.
In this teaser, Annakin reveals something personal...
The result is the first Yoga Myth Buster video, featuring Annakin Slayd - in leggings - demonstrating that even very unflexible people can in fact do yoga. I hope you'll enjoy it and share it with all your bendy-challenged friends!
