I'm not saying that we concede it. I'm saying that if you take two beginners, one man and one woman, their start level will be different. She will most likely be more flexible and he will be better at strength moves. Of course, I am talking about vinyasa yoga- not just restorative types that are low strength high alignment focus. In order to get better at yoga, you will need to have both strength and flexibility. There is no way you can take more advanced classes if you're flexible an flabby. The amount of planks and "push ups" (chaturanga) alone will kill you.
