An L.A. Yoga Instructor Shares Her Top 3 Stretches for Flexibility

Some of us are born more flexible than others, but we can all benefit from improving our flexibility through active stretches practiced regularly. Stretching offers a great number of benefits such as improving circulation and posture, reducing risk of injury, increasing range of motion, bettering physical performance, and allowing the body to use up less energy when active. Essentially, the more flexible you are, the less stress you're putting on your body—both on muscles and joints but also energy expenditure. To practice safe stretching that will help us attain these many benefits, we reached out to L.A. yoga instructor Alexis Novak to share and demonstrate her top three stretches for flexibility.
