Flexible in your thinking.
Do you think it is remotely possible to ever stop calling yourself inflexible?
If so, you are likely in the right place.
I don't know....as usual it DEPENDS and we likely can't figure this out on the internet.
Cookie cutter answers don't really work so I won't give one.
If you need a therapeutics or a very gentle class or a chill out experience there are WONDERFUL offerings and teachers in the Bay Area and beyond.
I can send you in the right direction...reach out.
The yoga we practice requires you to PARTICIPATE in your experience.... to work WITH your X and Y and a bit of Z and whatever else you got.
Most of all we teach you to VIEW the stuff you got...that X and Y and bit of Z differently.
Our classes are a learning environment.
We don't work in levels like beginner, intermediate and advanced....we all learn and absorb at different rates.
And what the heck is advanced anyway?
And time spent practicing yoga does not necessarily correlate to skill or practice level. Read more on that here.
We are all here figuring out how to live better in the the body we live in.
That makes us all beginners.
Don't let the fear of being a beginner get in the way of learning something that matters.
Advanced in what?
We come to yoga to heal. That is about IT.
So if you are advanced in wanting to heal....consider yourself advanced.
If you are seeking a practice that requires you to participate in your experience, that jumps the chasm of receiving information to INTEGRATING information...you are advanced.
