“I’m so inflexible and stressed out, I should do yoga”

To think yoga is to get body-flexible and to manage stressful moments may be missing the point.
True flexibility and stress management comes from the practice of breaking through your own barriers and blind spots, and using your newly honed tools to serve others. Service and advocacy (for oneself and for others) is the ultimate self-care. The practice of yoga places the mirror in front of you, puts you under pressure, and taps you into your internal resources to better navigate those irritations and to overcome yourself so that you can thrive in life and elevate the rest of the world with you.
