Our bodies are designed to move. Being still for long periods of time will atrophy our muscles and create tension that makes us feel stuck. Physical health and well-being must include a certain level of mobility. This doesn’t mean putting our legs behind our head. We simply want to be able to do basic things like bend over to tie our shoes or reach for a high shelf. Stretching not only increases our range of motion, but it releases stored tension, flushes out waste, brings more oxygen to our muscles and helps to prevent injury.

    This is a great class but please remove the music. It is very distracting and caused me to fidget at times when Vytas is trying to emphasize the purpose of concentration. During an an up beat electronic bit, it was misplaced during a peaceful pose. Another time, I thought there was an alarm going off. I almost had to stop the class because of the music.
