I did yoga for a while. Had chronic back issues for 10 years. After a couple of months of yoga it went away completely. I also imagine it helps absorb hits. I was in the best shape of my life and got mad tail. I could almost tap a chick from behind and go down on her at the same time.
The Will Farrel skit is 100% achievable. Never tried it or felt the need but could have.

I agree about Yoga and people that I see that do it often are always very healthy.

Go try some yoga man, it is not as easy as it seems. It will have you drenched in sweat, but feeling great afterward.

But that still made me laugh

Plus I pulled some mad tail from my classes. Guy to girl ratio is like 20-1.
There may be one or two roundmouths in there but they don't count.

Growing up stretching in Martial Arts has given me flexibility my whole life.....even at 58 I'm still fairly flexible. It's easy to see the benefits for a pro athlete to spend a lot of time stretching
