Yoga Improves Flexibility

Stretching is a key part of Yoga and improved flexibility translates into increased mobility as we continue to age. As young kids flexibility comes pretty naturally to us but maintaining that flexibility becomes increasingly important as the years go by.

Having lived in Vancouver all my life it feels like we're in the Yoga capital of the world. I've never been to India and I imagine there are many other places that Yoga is popular - but Yoga studios are like Starbucks here in Vancouver (I'm not sure how far Starbuck's Coffee franchise reaches elsewhere in the world - but I there are 5 within a four block radius of my house here in Vancouver). Yoga is definately huge in Vancouver.
