Since the inception of Yoga as a mind+body development practice many moons ago … now fast forward to the present day ... much has changed.
And Yoga pants changed everything 😉 !!!
These changes (just to name a few), have contributed to the fact that many people’s bodies are feeling worse off after their Yoga practice.
Have you just begun Yoga, or tried it for years, and still your muscles feel tight?
You may be thinking, perhaps Yoga’s just not for my body.
But it may not be Yoga’s fault.
If Yoga isn’t making your body feel as graceful and free as you’d like, you may be overlooking, or haven’t learned, the deeper details for better movement when you’re doing your asanas.
Without understanding foundational movement principles when you’re practicing Yoga, you may be doing yourself more harm than good.
I’ve seen this happen more times than I’d like to count. I’ve had many aspiring Yogi’s seek out my help to heal injuries from stretching too far in a Bikram Hot Yoga class, or trying to get the perfect wheel pose.
While I’m not a Yoga teacher, it’s allowed me to observe modern day Yoga practice from a neutral perspective, without all the dogma’s that can often be associated.
Through my observations I’ve realised a few important factors that can be causing your muscles to feel tight, even though you do Yoga.
And 9 times out of 10, Yoga isn’t necessarily the problem. It’s often the way you’re relating with yourself, during the practice of Yoga.
If you’d like to develop a better relationship with your body and your Yoga, I’ve created a 3 part video series just for you.
In this video series you'll learn 3 reasons why your muscles feel tight, even though you do Yoga.
