Not Flexible Enough for Yoga? Think Again!

Hatha | By Elena Brower on Oct 30 2012
If you claim inflexibility as your excuse for avoiding yoga, this one's for you. Learn how to safely stretch your shoulders and hamstrings by bringing your muscles closer to your bones, teaching your body to open when you want to close, giving your body a half hour of ever-so-slightly-challenging healing.

    I'm coming back to yoga after a break of a couple of years so I'm taking baby steps at the moment. Very stiff but this really helped me breathing into the stiffness. Thank you!

    Thank you for a wonderful 30 minutes. I am very stiff and have always struggled. Today I felt success. Thank you

    I was feeling very tight and inflexible today (I don't always, but today I did), and this was just what I needed. I feel so much more open. Thank you, Elena, for such a beautiful class.

    The description of this class (and not the title) hooked me and I'm glad I trusted that. This is a great class for even those of us who have been practicing for a while, but need reminded about staying open and going deeper. Thank you.

    Thank you Elena, I am just recovering from a pulled hamstring and all my flexibility was lost.
    Even in this short practice, I went from not being able to touch the ground to touching it with my fingertips.
    Love & light

    I must have needed this so much - the results were out of all proportion. Sometimes there's a temptation to 'strive' in the wrong way, even in yoga. Thank you.
  • Marianne Brorup Weston     Nov 14th, 2012
    Socool to revisit and expand on the basic foundation. Namaste.

    Older body recovering from knee surgery. This practice has my legs saying "yes" to walking without the limp! Thank you.

    Hi, I can't get any volume on any of the classes today?
    • YogaGlo     Nov 6th, 2012
      Jacquie - we just emailed you tips to help with that on your end.
  • Kate Mitchell     Nov 1st, 2012
    Wow, I initially thought this class might be too 'easy', but often it's the subtle asanas that are the most intense - yoga always has a habit of surprising me like this! Thank you, my legs are feeling very happy :)
  • Jessica Barker     Oct 30th, 2012
    I have been practicing yoga for 12+ years and I still get so many refinements from each one of your classes. The shoulder openers were wonderful and much needed for me as a new mother. Thanks Elena!
