Yoga for Flexibility

People again and again state things like ‘I cannot do yoga, I am completely inflexible.’ However especially people who have not yet great flexibility are the ones who get the biggest benefits out of yoga. Yoga is not only for those who are flexible, yoga brings flexibility!

If you are looking for flexibility training, you are perfectly right with yoga. It is known that yoga improves flexibility in your whole body from your legs, hips, back and shoulders to your arms and even fingers and toes. Yoga poses for flexibility gently move you towards your goal of a flexible body. You may not believe it but if you bend down today and cannot reach the floor, you may be able to reach it tomorrow with the fingertips and next week with your full palm.

The yoga postures that we selected and posted below are perfect for your individual flexibility workout. Please keep in mind only to go until your limit and never to cross it. Crossing your limits may give you success for one moment but will throw you back in your practice for several weeks of muscle pain during which you won’t be able to properly practice.

So please take care, don’t force it, let your muscles slowly become more flexible.
