Happy FIT FRIDAY!
As a lover of Yoga and advocate for TOTAL health & wellness, today’s post is about flexibility.
Flexibility is often the forgotten component of physical fitness.
MYTH: Flexibility is not important unless I am a gymnast or yoga enthusiast.
Fact: There are five main components of physical fitness that are all equally important.
“Better flexibility may improve your performance in physical activities or decrease your risk of injuries by helping your joints move through their full range of motion and enabling your muscles to work most effectively. Stretching also increases blood flow to the muscle”. – www.mayoclinic.org
Livestrong.com also notes that flexibility can decrease back pain, improve posture, decrease stress and improve oxygen circulation in the body.
This is why flexibility is a big part of my fitness routine and also a main component of Soulance Sessions.
How often do you flex?!
Very Truly Yours,
