Yoga asana offers many benefits, including flexibility, stress reduction, and body awareness.
However, after years of practice, many yoga students find that they have acquired hypermobility and joint instability, which can result in chronic aches and pains. Oftentimes, increasing strength is a safe and effective solution.
Adding resistance bands to your practice will give you opportunities to build strength and motor control as you move your body through its full range of motion against external resistance.
Additionally, after using resistance bands, you might discover that traditional poses feel more stable and supported, because of your newly acquired strength. You might also notice you have fewer aches and pains!
