“You’re only as young as your spine is flexible.”
So in a perfect world we would all be capable of stretching like the guy from the Fantastic 4, but in reality, most of us are not gifted with super bendy genes. The art of yoga can be quite exquisite, with beautiful backbend poses that are performed with such elegance and grace.
Some of us want to become more flexible to be better dancers, performers, and athletes, but the vast majority of us really want to relieve back pain, and increase our overall mobility.
I learned right away that my back had underlying issues, and yoga has helped me so far in slowly correcting them.
