Go deeper in your stretches, hit the wall

The secret to a perfectly aligned asana

Tight muscles can cause undue strain on the neighbouring joints during normal daily function, or they themselves can become injured. We need to take an active role in maintaining and improving the length of our muscles so we can continue to enjoy our abilities without pain. Sasha Cyrelson, D.P.T., clinical director at Professional Physical Therapy, New Jersey.

Luckily, improving your flexibility and mobility isn’t hard. It just takes a little time, and the secret is hitting the wall literally.
