Does being flexible make you more flexible?

I’ve been doing yoga for what, about 8 months now? And, I have to say, I’ve gotten quite flexible. I looooove it. It’s fun being able to put my hands flat on the ground while standing and hold all my weight on two hands in an arm balance.

But, the real reason I started doing yoga is for the relaxing, stress-releasing stretching and breathing. Let’s just say I needed to chill the hell out.

I think it’s helped somewhat. I don’t have the stress I did months ago, but I also noticed a change in perspective. I don’t really care as much when someone makes me mad at work or someone cuts me off in traffic or even of a friend ignores my call. Is it the yoga? Does the regular practice of yoga make me a more flexible, carefree person?

Maybe. Maybe not. But, sitting in this pose does help me breathe a little easier.

(Yes. I can do that)
