Is Yoga Just Stretching?

  • Yoga places emphasis on alignment, meaning that how you are touching your toes is more important than whether you can actually touch them or not.
  • Attention to the breath and tuning in to the subtle sensations of the body introduce a mindfulness to even simple yoga poses that is missing from stretching.
  • Most yoga poses are not stretching an isolated area, but rather involve the whole body in both stretching and strengthening.
