Yoga myth alert: you do not have to be flexible to start taking yoga classes. Flexibility is something yoga gives you and do not worry, most clients in our studios do not bend like pretzels! Think: we lift weights to strengthen our muscles; in the same way, we do yoga to make our muscles more flexible (and yoga will strengthen them as well!). Whether you are sitting a lot during your work day or engaging in repetitive motion activities such as running, tennis, golf or other sports, you are shortening your muscles and building up tension. Yoga allows you to lengthen, expand and release tension and ultimately the toxins in your body that occur as the result of tension. Yoga is a great balance to many other activities and even our lifestyles and it can also encompass your complete fitness regimen.
