Yoga has been a huge help for me. I worked out for many years without proper stretching. As a result my muscles are very tight and and often ache. Yoga, especially hot yoga, gives me a concentrated time in which I stretch and improve my flexibility. Being guided through the stretches is great because it works with my competitive mind set. I feel challenged to work through the pain and complete the task.

No time for yoga actually, though it is good, but no time for stretching exercises

Yoga fits into life if it fits you as a person. That’s how i see it. Please remember that some of its positions in Yoga; no matter who tells you otherwise ARE IN FACT BAD FOR YOUR BACK! So please know and understand that proper techniques are essential for this type exercise. If you are practicing Yoga and you have not had an actual instructor to ensure you positions are correct please do so to avoid injury. I would also suggest that you see your physician and make an appointment with an physical therapists to discuss your flexibility and how the best way to improve it would be for your own individual circumstances. After many many years training i wish i would have understood how important technique and form was when i first began. You can avoid so many injuries by slowing down and taking your time to learn to do things the proper way. You will also find that when you slow down and use proper form and technique you will gain the full rewards of your exercise of choice no matter what it may be.

I'm a corrective specialist luckily, so there are actually some asanas I dont generally suggest for some specific clients, and some asanas definitely require a strength and coordination that can only be worked up to. But yes, technique and form are important for any activity, and most of the people I see have had a substantial contribution made to their dysfunctions due to terrible technique in exercise and motion.

Well first, I know yoga has to be good for some fitness people. I see thin abs and limberness is amazing. I would like to know as I have L4, L5, according to VA doctors is completely ruined. Could yoga be used in my situation? RTR!

I would definitely make sure you get an experienced specialist to assist in what positions you are going to perform. Maybe Algavinn has some suggestions of hand?
