Why should everyone stretch their muscles?
It's not necessary for all of us to be as flexible as a yoga specialist, but flexibility throughout the joints, and in the muscles and surrounding tissue is important for general health and to prevent injury.
Joint and muscle stiffness create limitations, tension, pain, poor posture and poor circulation.
Having loose and flexible joints and muscles helps us to feel relaxed, increases blood flow, increases energy and reduces the pain you may feel after exercising.
All of my exercise routines include total body stretching. I'll show you the proper way to stretch, as you can actually get hurt by stretching the wrong way.
Should we find a particularly inflexible area of your body, we'll spend more time warming up stretching that area.
