There’s a saying, “I bend so I don’t break”.

Most of us living in this modern-day and age definitely need a little bit more bending and a little bit less breaking.

By prasticing a small handful of basic yoga postures, one can benefit from increased flexibility, mobility, balance, and strength.

While yoga is often seen as a standalone practice that is reserved for only certain people, the reality is that there are people from all walks of life in all different shapes and sizes practising and benefiting from yoga in some way.

In fact, very often, a few basic yoga postures can go a long way to complimenting many other athletic and exercise routines.

Yoga can help by taking your body through a variety of full ranges of motion that can help relieve tension and counteract many of the overly repetitive movements that we tend to do on a daily basis.
