Advanced Traditional Hatha Yoga with Babu Raj. Flexibility & Strength from the Himalayas, India

Moving your body and stretching in new ways will help you become more flexible, bringing a greater range of motion to tight areas.1 Over time, you can expect to gain flexibility in your hamstrings, back, shoulders, and hips.

A 2016 study published in the International Journal of Yoga evaluated the effects of a yoga practice on male college athletes. Over the course of the 10-week study, researchers observed significant gains in flexibility and balance in the group that practiced yoga compared to the group that did not. The study authors concluded that a yoga practice can potentially enhance athletic performance and increase flexibility in athletes.2
