Stretching is important on so many levels. It keeps our muscles flexible and healthy which keeps our range of motion in tact. The more flexible you are, the better your joints will feel. It’s important to stretch during and after exercise however you can stretch at any time. We often stretch after long car rides or sitting at the desk for too long but you can take a few minutes multiple times throughout the day to take a few breaths and stretch your body.
Yoga is great for stretching. It’s like a double bonus because in addition to all of the great stretching that you get from yoga, you also strengthen your core. The awesome thing about yoga is that it’s good for all levels and small tweaks can make a big difference on the benefits that you reap. Make a conscious effort every day to incorporate a few stretches into your daily routine. You will be glad that you did.

Yup, I don’t do Yoga, but I always try to stretch before I start my jog. I think that’s important so I don’t pull a muscle.
I learned the importance of stretching a couple of years ago after I had a running injury
I love stretching! I definitely don’t do enough of it, that’s for sure. I really love YOGA!!!
This is one of the relaxation methods I use especially after hard day’s work! Thanks for reminding me to take some time out and just reflect and do yoga! Time to relax!
I have always wanted to try yoga. I understand how important it is to stretch…before any exercise regiment. Thanks for the inspiration!
I stretch every morning and evening. I find that I feel better all day when I do a few stretches before my feet hit the floor and that I sleep better when I stretch just before bed.
I need to stretch more for sure. I was bending the other day and my body ached so bad its because I dont stretch regularly.
I never really thought of trying Yoga before, but after reading this I found it very interesting and wanted to go on a class now.
I don’t do yoga but I want to learn how to do it. It looks intimidating, though.
Strong muscles do more than look good. They also protect us from conditions like arthritis and back pain, and help prevent falls in elderly people. And when you build strength through yoga, you balance it with flexibility.
This is my favorite aspect of yoga. It really helps me feel more limber and less tense in my muscles. It’s great for improving flexibility and movement.
I try to do yoga daily, it makes me feel good inside and outside. Thanks for the inspiration!
