Yes, not only can you do yoga. I would say you should do yoga. Sure, yoga has a reputation of being performed by people who are already very flexible, but yoga and other types of stretching is how you get there. For any position that you can't do because you're too inflexible, or are suffering from tight muscles, there's always a more moderate position you ...

They have a lot of theory and a very clear curriculum for increasing both flexibility and mobility. There is also some free material on Youtube as well as ...

If you want to post critique videos, then you can definitely post them here. However, I'm not ...

This new larger ROM has to be solidified by acquiring strength in end range of ...
