Yoga for flexibility

When I got pregnant with Ryder I had a lot of joint and ligament pain. It was mainly in my legs. I did yoga up until I was 5 1/2 months pregnant and that helped significantly. That is until I got too big and my belly got in the way so yoga was put on hold. I still get joint and ligament pain on occasion even 9 months post delivery. It helps to stretch and do yoga whenever I can. I think flexibility is a huge part of health and fitness. I’m not saying you need to be Gumby, but having a little flexibility is great for your muscle strength. It also helps reduce the risk of muscular injury. If yoga isn’t your thing, then just take 5 minutes a day to do a few simple stretches. You’re sure to notice a difference in your muscles and joints after a few weeks.
