Flexibility for Heart Health

A recent study has linked flexible bodies with flexible arteries. Wondering why you may want flexible arteries? Well, arteries that are elastic help to moderate blood pressure whereas stiff arteries just get clogged up! One more great reason to practice yoga (we knew it was good for the heart, but I love that we can add 'artery health' to the long list of yoga benefits)!

The hilarious yogis at Yoga Dork blogged about this heart health finding earlier today. You can read their witty and informative take on the study here. My favorite line? "Yoga, just like Drano®!" But more environmentally friendly of course ;)
