Tara Stiles 9-Minute Flexibility Yoga Routine

Not everyone wants to be able to wrap their leg around their neck (and why would you want to, really?) but being able to stretch is important for a strong, healthy body.

If you sleep anything like me, you wake up every morning with odd cricks and creaks after a night of contorting yourself into semi-painful sleeping positions. Try this 9-minute yoga routine with Tara Stiles to smooth out all those kinks. Or do it when you get home at the end of the day after 8+ hours sitting at your desk. Your muscles and joints will thank you for it.

If you want more amazing yoga routines from Tara, at the end of the video, select your level and voila: a series of yoga workouts that fit your skills. Get stretching!
