Yoga for Flexibility
While all yoga stretches the body, there are some that focus on flexibility more than others. If you’re looking to use yoga specifically to increase your muscle flexibility, either Vinyasa or Bikram yoga will likely meet your needs! Vinyasa is very similar to Hatha Yoga, the most common form practiced today, and is suitable for beginner and expert yogis. Bikram yoga, or hot yoga, is practiced in a 95-100 degree room in order to promote the looseness of muscles and is also good for treating injuries. Flexibility doesn’t last forever, so regardless of what you choose be sure to maintain a consistent workout! While it does have lasting effects, stretching must be practiced regularly to maintain healthy, happy muscles.
