A well-stretched muscle more easily achieves its full range of motion. This improves athletic performance — imagine an easier, less restricted golf swing or tennis serve — and functional abilities, such as reaching, bending, or stooping during daily tasks. Stretching can also be a great way to get you moving in the morning or a way to relax after a long day. Activities such as yoga combine stretching and relaxation and also improve balance, a wonderful combination.

No matter what age-group you are in, being flexible is great for preventing injuries, back pain, and balance problems. Try the following 25-minute Yin Yoga Fusion by BohoBeautiful once in the morning and once in the evening to maintain a flexible spine and stay strong!
This Yin Yoga Flow class is going to give you that relaxing deep stretch your body has been craving for. Focusing on fusing Vinyasa based flow (Yang) with slow and tension releasing postures (Yin), this class is great to do in morning as well as anytime during the day as we focus on first warming up the body with a flow, and then taking it into a deep release by holding each Yin pose for 2 minutes.
Remember, breathing is a very important factor in any Yin Yoga class so through out this entire practice make sure you’re taking deep breaths in and long slow exhales out. Bring oxygen to your muscles, organs, and mind. Re-energize your nervous system, let go of stress and tension, and become fully present in each moment of each posture as you let go of the past with each exhale you make.
