Over my lifetime people have always shared with me the importance of staying flexible. As a young child and on into my early 20’s flexibility came naturally. But, an injury to my spine caused me to move with less agility. Thanks to a suggestion by a chiropractor in Hawaii, Dr. Allen Creed, when I was in my mid 20’s to start a steady practice of yoga. Now almost 40 years later my mobility is better than when I was in my 20’s and my back is pain free. Doing the splits is not mandatory for practicing yoga, but you may just surprise yourself!
