If you have stiff hamstrings, locked-up hips, and a painful lower back; if you’ve tried yoga and stretching exercises, but didn’t see many results, then there’s a very good chance I can help you.
My name is Lucas Rockwood, and I’m now a yoga teacher and teacher trainer, but I used to be a stiff office worker who couldn’t even touch his toes—not by a long shot. I tried yoga classes, at-home videos, and read half-a-dozen human anatomy books but nothing worked. Every day, I suffered through your typical stretching exercises, convincing myself it was worth it, but I wasn’t getting results.
When you’re stiff, it feels like you’re trapped in your own body, and I hated it. Since you’re reading this today, maybe you can relate to that stuck feeling in yoga or during the physical activities you love; or even when you’re simply trying to sit cross-legged on the floor.
Before I discovered Gravity Yoga, I had the mobility of someone in their 70’s yet I was in my early 20’s. People tend to get stiffer as they age, obviously, but I couldn’t imagine losing any more mobility, so I became determined to find a solution.
Top Benefits of Functional Flexibility
Most students I work with today are frustrated because they have lost their basic range of motion like the ability to bend forward at the hips, squat down deeply, and clasp their hands behind their back.
By the time most people reach adulthood, not only have they stopped playing like a kid, they’ve actually lost the functional flexibility required to climb trees, swing from monkey bars, squat in the dirt, and move freely. The good news is you can regain your lost flexibility (and often much, much more), and the benefits you’ll experience go way beyond the yoga mat.
Commonly Reported Benefits of Functional Flexibility:
Less Athletic Injury. Tight muscles don’t cause injuries. It’s the irregular movement patterns and unconscious work-around’s that get you into trouble. People with tight hips and hamstrings often have abnormal walking and running gates and many have affected standing postures too. These imbalances lead to back and knee injuries as just two common examples.
The number one reason people stop running, stop going to the gym or stop doing the activities they love is because they get hurt and never get back into it after they recover. With an intelligent self-care flexibility training regime, you can move toward a balanced body and help remain injuryfree for life.
Reduce Your Back, Neck & Body Pains. Joint pain, muscle soreness, and cramping can be reduced (and even eliminated) with intelligent mobility training. Your body is designed to express itself with a wide range of motion, and the more you tap into those natural patterns, the more the aches and pains of sedentary life fade. Many are surprised to learn that lower back pain is often a result of tight hip flexors, that neck pain can be due to locked-up shoulders, and that their hamstrings can trigger dozens of aches in the body.
Be More Active. Whether you’re passionate about yoga, skiing, moutain biking, or just being able to throw a frisbee around in the park, when your body is open and limber, everything just works and feels better. Movement becomes fun again.
Improve Your Circulation. Many people assume heart strength is the only factor affecting circulation, but this is an oversimplification. Your body’s vascular system is huge and its capillaries are so vast and so tiny that they are constantly affected by your movements (or lack thereof).
Since stiffness is often systemic, the tightness in the backs of your legs could indicate you have impaired circulation to your extremities and connective tissues. Flexibility training unblocks stuck areas and helps to naturally improve whole-body circulation.
Travel in Comfort. A huge part of the discomfort you experience from long car and airplane rides is due to poor mobility. When you regain your natural flexibility, it becomes easier and more comfortable to sit for long stretches of time—and yes, even cross-legged on the floor (that was always a huge one for me).
Improved Sleep. Muscle cramps, poor posture, and abnormal breathing patterns can be greatly reduced with proper pre-bed stretching exercises. Many find that with just 15 minutes of Gravity Yoga before bed, they sleep deeper and wake up refreshed.
Tone Your Nervous System. When your nerves are blocked by shortened tissues, it can physically impair the free-flow of electrical energy throughout your body. Conversely, when you increase your flexibility, you turn your body into a superconductor for energy. This can improve proprioception everywhere, but the most profound benefits are often experienced in the hands, feet, wrists, and shoulders.
Enjoy a Better Love Life. There is no need to explain how flexibility can help in this department; you can use your imagination.

My Story: I Was Embarrassingly Stiff
I remember going to a crowded party in New York City in 2002. There were no chairs left so my friend suggested we sit on the floor— and why not? Sitting on the floor is a perfectly normal human thing to do; except that like most people, I hadn’t sat on the floor since elementary school.
And this is where it got ridiculous.
The girl I was with was an avid yoga student, so she flipped one leg on top of the other sitting in a meditation-style position as if it were the easiest thing in the world. But me? My hips were so tight, I couldn’t sit on the ground without my knees bent to chest-height and my back curled up like Quasimodo.
After 10 minutes, I was literally sweating in discomfort, red-faced and embarrassed. It was so obvious I was suffering that a guy sitting nearby actually started teasing me about my tight hips. It sounds like a small thing, but it was a moment of truth for me. It was the moment I realized I’d let myself go, and I needed to do something about it.
I was 23 with the flexibility of someone 73, and my stiffness was affecting my life. My standing posture was horrible. I had terrible back pain while traveling and working at my desk, and I was always getting injured from the simplest of exercises.
When I bent forward, my hands reached just halfway down my shins; I couldn’t reach my ankles, much less my toes. Backbends were out of the question, and my hips felt like two big blocks of ice. All that aside, I knew that there had to be a way to fix this. I knew this was a soft tissue problem—not a bone problem—so I set out on a mission to find a solution.
It’s Not Too Late (really)
Ask yourself… What if first thing in the morning, you could bend over and put the palms of your hands flat on the floor in front of you in a forward bend?
What if you could sit cross-legged with no back support for an hour in the middle of a room without any discomfort? And what if you could twist 180 degrees, do a full backbend with your arms straight and clasp your hands behind your back in a shoulder stretch?
All of those movements sounded impossible to me during my “flexibility crisis,” but I now know that they are basic range of motion movements that can be relearned by anyone who is willing to set aside 15 minutes a day for flexibility training and add specific micro-nutrients to their diet to support their tissues. Proper flexibility training and proper nutrition are where you’ll find the biggest results.
Before I introduce you to Gravity Yoga and my super food stack for flexibility, let me tell you how this whole approach came to be.
Why Yoga Classes Often Fail (for flexibility)
There is a stereotype that yoga classes are all about flexibility, but that’s almost never the case. Most classes focus on strength, balance, breath, concentration, and the mind-body connection. Flexibility is surely on the list, but it’s usually at the bottom of the list of priorities in most classes.
I didn’t know that back then, so I became a yoga maniac going to class every day. The other students seemed pretty limber, so it made logical sense to sign up for a membership. Much to my surprise, after weeks of suffering through classes, I hadn’t achieved noticeable results.
Don’t get me wrong, I loved yoga. Right away, I felt more calm, my balance was improving, and I was even losing weight; but I was still as stiff as a board and didn’t see that changing anytime soon.
And then I met this weird guy named, Anthony.
Anthony was my age and attended classes with me at a Hot Yoga studio in Soho in New York City. Anthony and I started out with the same sized bodies and the same ability (which was actually no ability), but after just four weeks, Anthony was on fire.
He was losing weight really quickly and getting strong and flexible while I was lucky to make it through the standing series without getting queasy and falling over. And in terms of my stretching flexibility? Forget it, I wasn’t getting anywhere.
In yoga class, you’re supposed to stay focused, but I couldn’t help staring. After 6 weeks, Anthony could lay flat against his shins in forward bends, cross his legs in full lotus, and go three times as deep as I could in backbends. He’d leaped from beginner to intermediate extremely quickly and whatever he was doing, it was working; and what I was doing clearly wasn’t.
Finally, I had to say something.
After two painful months of Hot Yoga torture (I was going every day), I finally got up the nerve to invite Anthony for pizza after class (this was before I learned how to eat plant-based). Anthony reluctantly agreed, and although he didn’t eat anything at dinner, he did tell me three secrets to stretching flexibility that I later learned are true for almost everyone.
Rule #1: Anyone Can Become “Wow” Flexible
What most people would consider extreme flexibility—the splits, full lotus, wheel pose—is actually just natural range of motion. If you doubt this, spend an afternoon with any six-year-old kid and you’ll realize that we were all naturally flexible, we’ve just lost it. The “wow” factor shouldn’t be a wow at all. It should just be normal, but we’ve all let ourselves get to a ridiculous state of inflexibility where basic tasks like bending over involve stretching.
Rule #2: You Don’t Get Flexible by Going to Yoga Classes
This was a real eye-opener for me. I used to think yoga was all about stretching and flexibility, but Anthony taught me that most yoga poses demonstrate rather than develop flexibility. “Yoga is a holistic health practice,” he told me. “If you’re stiff, you don’t need yoga. You need to stretch!”
After struggling through daily yoga classes for two solid months, this was the last thing I wanted to hear, even though I knew it was true from experience. Despite all my efforts and commitment, my stretching flexibility had barely improved at all.
Rule #3: Pizza Makes You Stiff
Anthony told me: “It’s possible to eat junk food and improve, but if you really want to increase your stretching flexibility fast, you need to eat better and take care of your micro-nutrients.”
He said: “To think that if you stretch more you’ll become more flexible is like saying if you eat less, you’ll lose weight. In theory, this is true, but in the real world, it just doesn’t work like that. To lose weight, you’ve got to eat right, and to get flexible, you’ve got to stretch right and get proper nutrients.”
I could tell Anthony was getting sick of my questions, but before he left, he wrote down a series of awkward yoga poses that he claimed he practiced every night before bed for about 15 minutes. He also made me list of nutritional supplements, most I’d never heard of before.
To summarize, Anthony was doing 15 minutes of extra flexibility training, eating lots of plant-based foods, and taking some supplemental micro-nutrients. That was it.
The Nervous System & Yoga Connection
Anthony developed his approach to supplemental flexibility training after seeing a series of doctors who attempted to treat a nerve condition that sometimes caused his entire right side to go numb. It was a weird condition that no one could figure out.
The doctors hadn’t been able to cure the nerve problem, but along the way, Anthony was introduced to some of the very interesting nutrition research and movement practices for nervous system health.
I didn’t know this then, but I now know that as much as 50% of your flexibility is determined by your nervous system—not your muscles!
“Don’t get me wrong,” Anthony told me. “Yoga has done me more good than seven specialists’ treatments combined, so keep going to class. But if you want to improve your stretching flexibility, do these extra stretches every night, skip the pizza, and try some of the nutritional supplements I wrote down for you.”
My Life is a Yoga Guinea Pig…
That night, I went online and ordered a dozen different supplements that Anthony recommended. Some were really hard to find and had to be shipped in from overseas. Others were pretty common, but I discovered massive differences in cost and quality. All-in-all, it took about three weeks before had everything I needed to get started, but once I got going, I never stopped.
I followed Anthony’s flexibility training program exactly as he instructed. It really only takes 15 minutes per day, and you do it right before bed so it’s easy to fit into your schedule. I began eating a plant-based diet and supplementing with the micro-nutrients Anthony recommended, and the results came very quickly.
In less than 30 days, I added six inches onto my forward bend, slid my legs into full lotus for the first time (just barely), and even practiced full wheel pose with straight arms.
In the office, people used to laugh at me when I bent over to pick a pen up off the ground—I was always “that stiff guy”—but using Anthony’s simple system, I doubled my stretching flexibility, and it felt amazing, like adding an extra room onto my house.
And it didn’t stop there.
Imagine waking up in the morning and being able to fold forward completely flat against your legs. What if your lower back was loose, limber, and pain-free all the time? What if your hips were open enough so you could sit on the floor with your legs crossed without any discomfort?
Flexible people sleep better, suffer from fewer injuries, build lean muscle more easily, dance better, and have higher self-esteem. Plus, bendy people are better at sports, and they’re even better in bed.
Here’s what I’ve learned…
There are two types of people: those who have always been limber, and then those who can’t even touch their toes without their hamstrings screaming out and their lower back on fire with pain. Since you’re reading this, I’m guessing you’re in the second category, like I was, but the good news is you can get back to your natural state.
When I started using this system, I noticed changes in a matter of days, and within a month, other people could see my body transforming. Within a year, I felt like I had an entirely new body. And the best part is, I’ve now helped over 45,000 people double, triple, or even quadruple their stretching flexibility using this same method.
Why Nutrition Matters
There’s a reason why bodybuilders eat loads of protein and endurance athletes suck down sugary gels—it makes them better at their sports. Almost every movement practice in the world has a preferred diet, but the traditional yoga diet of bread, milk, beans and rice is a total disaster for health and flexibility.
Here’s what’s going on…
In an ideal world, it would be great if we all ate a perfectly balanced, micro-nutrient dense diet and drank spring water loaded with minerals. But we don’t. Micro-nutrient deficiencies are more common than not since the advent of mass agriculture because massproduced food is synonymous with low micro-nutrient foods.
Food today is grown for calories and taste, not nutrients. Our earth’s soils are abused to edge of infertility, and the result is that we have an abundance of foods that are loaded with calories but light on micronutrients. I’m talking about vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, enzymes, and all kinds of other compounds we’ve yet to discover or fully understand.
For yoga students, the micro-nutrients are what really matters.
These micro or “small” nutrients are essential for the health of your body’s connective tissues. Sulfur, magnesium, vitamin C, and essential fats, for example, are crucial for soft tissue health. Flexibility training is subtle energy work, and highly-demanding on your body. A protein shake or an energy gel is not ideal for yoga students. Green-juice, sulfur-rich vegetables, omega-3’s, vitamin C laden fruits… these are the foods of yoga students.
I never liked the idea of nutritional supplements, but I quickly learned that our modern diets really demand them because it’s so rare to meet your nutritional needs from food alone. So my solution was to find the closest supplements to nature possible.
Ideally, I wanted whole-food based supplements (like algae), and when not possible, I wanted the most pure and most bio-available forms of these nutrients so my body wouldn’t know the difference.
Over the course of a year, I tried 64 different natural supplements – vitamins, minerals, algae, oils, and plant extracts – until I found a specific formula that packed a potent punch and made stretching exercises and yoga poses easier and more effective.
To make sure my flexibility stack was balanced, I worked with a senior supplement formulator with 25 years of experience, with one of the top five supplement manufactures in the world; and I also consulted with series of medical doctors and alternative health practitioners.
My new formula has the same basic nutritional stack that Anthony recommended, but everything I use now is plant-derived, organically-sourced whenever possible, and filler-free.
#1 Yoga Nutritional Formula Since 2007
Since this formula was first introduced in 2007, it’s been a tremendous success with distribution in 81 countries. One of the largest supplement chains in the world (GNC) attempted to replicate our formula, but was unsuccessful. As a small, independent company, we’re proud to remain the leader in yoga nutrition. Let me explain each of the formula’s ingredients so you know exactly how they work.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) – this is a naturally occurring nutrient found in the diets of humans and almost all other animals. MSM is made up of 34% sulfur, the 4th most abundant mineral in the human body. This mineral supports healthy, active lifestyles and benefits connective tissues among many other metabolic processes. MSM originates in the ocean but is extracted from the lignin of pine trees. The MSM we use is 99.8% pure making it indistinguishable from the MSM found in broccoli, peppers, Brussels sprouts, onions, asparagus, cabbage, and mother’s milk.
NOTE: not all MSM is created equally. The cheap stuff, usually made in China, is made through crystallization and is often poorly absorbed and can cause gas and bloating. Our MSM is 100% USA manufactured through a proprietary distillation process, it carries 3rd-party testing for purity, and has clinically-backed research for efficacy.
TRIPLE GREEN BLEND – this organic, three-part, super green mixture is loaded with minerals, chlorophyll and essential fats to help your soft tissues. This is essentially a super-green salad packed into a convenient capsule. Spirulina (fresh water algae) delivers a whopping dose of B vitamins, Iron, and the essential fat, GLA.
Chlorella (fresh water algae) is packed with chlorophyll, also known as “the blood of plants,” and is believed to have powerful blood-body cleansing properties. Chlorella is known to boost energy and aid in the natural elimination of heavy metals and other toxins. Barley Grass Juice Extract, the ultimate green food, is excellent for stretching students because of its high levels of beta-carotene, calcium, and iron.
UTLRA-SORB VITAMIN C (Magnesium Ascorbate) – Vitamin C is well-known for its ability to boost the immune system, fight free radicals, and ward off illnesses, but research now shows that Vitamin C also plays a key role in the health and regeneration of your body’s connective tissues.
Vitamin C is naturally acidic, so we’ve buffered it with alkalizing magnesium which makes it easier to digest and absorb. Recent studies suggest that MSM and Vitamin C work synergistically to boost the immune system, fight aging, and reduce recovery time from stretching. Magnesium is an important mineral for muscle relaxation so it’s a very helpful addition.
TRACE MINERAL UPTAKE ENHANCERS – trace minerals like cobalt, selenium, magnesium, and zinc play a vital role in dozens of metabolic processes such as tissue growth, healthy metabolism, and proper water retention.
These minerals work in collaboration with other vitamins and phytonutrients, increasing their absorption and boosting their effectiveness. In the past, the earth was naturally rich in minerals, but over-cultivation has led to mineral deficiencies in the soil and in our bodies. To ensure nutrient balance, trace minerals are essential, and a daily dose of YOGABODY™ Stretch does the trick. Our trace minerals are sourced from montmorillonite, natural earth clay.
Gravity Yoga: Long-Hold, Passive Stretches
When I first started stretching, I wish someone had told me that muscles stretch best when they are relaxed. It seems obvious now, but I’d never thought it through. This concept is essential if you’re serious about increasing your flexibility, so I’ll say that again: muscles stretch best when relaxed.
This means when you’re in the middle of a dynamic movement, whether running or doing a Warrior I pose, it’s very unlikely your soft tissues will lengthen. It can happen, but it’s a very slow process and much less effective than when you’re completely relaxed.
Gravity Yoga involves long-hold, timed poses in a completely passive position.
Here’s why this matters…
If you’re looking to transform shortened tissues (tight hamstrings, locked up hips, stiff shoulders), your flexibility training must include passive, long-hold stretches with appropriate breathing to turn off your nervous system’s stretch reflex. We want your body like a wet noodle, you want to turn on your parasympathetic nervous system, and then gently lengthen your soft tissues.
This is so effective that within 2-5 minutes, you’ll see and feel a dramatic difference in your range of motion right away from your first session. Within a week, you’ll have made lasting changes, and within 30 days, your body will look and feel noticeably different in a variety of poses.
Here are the Fundamentals of Gravity Yoga:
Long-hold poses are essential to turn off your stretch reflex and gently lengthen your soft tissues while disengaged
Nose-to-mouth breathing with a 1:1 or 1:2 ratio down-regulates your nervous system and allows your body to soften
Flexibility training should be done after any other type of exercise, and ideally, before bed because you never want loose joints before a workout
You must “meet or beat” your passive stretch hold times daily to incite change, otherwise your body will naturally come out of poses before any lengthening happens
My most successful Gravity Yoga students practice for 15-minutes a day, right before bed. All you need is enough space to roll out a mat, a stop watch (use your phone), and you’re ready to go. There is nothing magical or mystical about this practice, so if you want to stretch while you listen to music or watch your favorite show, go right ahead.
NOTE: Gravity Yoga has nothing in common with warm-up stretches, dynamic or ballistic stretching you probably learned in physical education class as a kid. This is intense, measured flexibility training that targets specific areas of the body, and you’ll immediately feel the difference.
Here’s Your 5-Day Flexibility Training Schedule
Monday: Hamstrings (2 yoga poses)
Tuesday: Hips (3 yoga poses)
Wednesday: Shoulders (3 yoga poses)
Thursday: Back (3 yoga poses)
Friday: Wrists, Twists, Ankles (3 yoga poses)
Let’s talk! For any questions about stretching, nutrition or anything else yoga-related, you can connect with me personally in our private Facebook Group (details below).
Here’s Your Flexibility Training Protocol
Step #1: Stretch 5 Days Per Week (just 15 min/day)
Keep doing your favorite activities or yoga classes, but just make sure you stretch for 15 minutes per day, five days each week using the specific yoga poses I’m going to teach you. If you do this routine for a month, you’ll double your flexibility. If you do it for a year, you’ll probably be more flexible than 95% of the population.
Step #2: Take Nutritional Supplements Daily
Take MSM, Superfood Micro-Greens, buffered Vitamin C, and Trace Minerals. This is an upgraded flexibility support stack that will provide for the nutritional needs of your changing body. These are water-soluble, super safe nutrients that can be used both short and long term. We have some students who cycle on and off as needed, others who have taken this stack continually for years. You’ll find out what your body needs.
Step #3: Eat More Plants
The YOGABODY approach to diet and nutrition is not a religion. You don’t need to become a vegetarian or eat rabbit food all day. What you do need is to dramatically increase your plant-food intake on a daily basis. Water-based, micro-nutrient-dense foods are the foundation for a limber body, so this is a simple and effective way to stack the nutritional deck in your favor.
Here’s What Students Are Saying…
“I tried YOGABODY courtesy of my yoga teacher trainer & mentor, and was amazed by the results.” After just 24 hours taking the supplements, I did an advanced practice and could not believe the difference in my strength and flexibility. Whoever put this together really knows what they’re doing!
– Mariann Grace (certified yoga instructor)
“I have been taking YOGABODY for about a month, and one of the most significant effects I noticed, was when I decided to do a 6 mile run with a friend.” I hadn’t run 6 miles in a couple years, and my running routine had dwindled to only 4 miles, 2-3 times per week. Normally in the past if I had done a 6 mile run I would be VERY sore the next couple days, but this time, with the addition of YOGABODY, I wasn’t sore AT ALL!! I couldn’t believe it!
– Shireen Khavari (runner)
“Right away I noticed a significant difference in the amount of energy I had: before, during, and after a yoga class when taking YOGABODY.” I challenge every yogi/yogini to try this product-yes, it’s THAT good!
– Tunde Martinez (yoga student)
“Thank you! I’ve been taking YOGABODY for just over a month and already I notice a difference.” I have knees and ankles that get very stiff and sore, and in fact, I’ve had two knee surgeries more than ten years ago. While taking YOGABODY, I notice less recurring stiffness and more range of motion. It feels like I need less warm-up time.
– Eric S. (yoga student)
“I must thank you again for the capsules.” I typically take between 4 and 6 caps every day, depending on my eating schedule. I definitely have a reduction of appetite. It seems that food just does not taste as good, so I’m less tempted to eat it. As a result, though I am not more than a couple of pounds lighter, I feel much lighter. I’m more of a runner than a yoga practitioner, and I feel like I can simply bounce up the off-road trails I run on daily. And, in terms of yoga, my backbends are getting much stronger and bigger-way bigger!
– Jason P. (yoga student)
“I’ve had lower back pain for years… an old injury.” Yoga has helped a lot, and now, YOGABODY is increasing the benefits. It relieves pain within about an hour and seems to be helping me heal and get flexible. I don’t go to the studio without it.
– Karen Gamble (yoga teacher)
“I’ve practiced yoga for almost 3 years and Ashtanga is my favorite practice.” Though I have a pretty flexible body, I will sometimes get sore or pain in my hamstring. Also, I had a hard time in doing Marichyasana D alone. But, after taking YOGABODY for a week, I can do Marichyasana D right now, and I can feel that my backbend poses can further be deepened. Yet, I don’t feel sore even after a strong practice. My body can recover very soon! It’s amazing!
– Maisie Chan (yoga student)
“I’ve been stretching daily for 6 years, and yet my hamstrings are still like two solid blocks of ice when I get on the mat each morning – all stiffness and pain.” Two days after I began using YOGABODY Stretch, I noticed that my hamstrings were really limber and my body felt loose and light. I also feel clear-headed and energized. Naturally, I was really surprised at how quickly I could feel the effects.
– Daniel W. (yoga student)
“I have been taking YOGABODY for just over 3 weeks and I noticed the results immediately.” I take 3 caps in the morning, about one hour before practice, and 3 caps at night. I can’t quite explain it but I have been flying through practice, and as a result, have been more focused and more on the ball. My appetite has also shrunk and digestion is a lot better. For whatever reason, I feel more energized, and this all happened when I started taking YOGABODY! I love it! This extra energy helps both in my own practice and when I teach.
– Tiana H. (yoga student)
“I used to overstretch quite frequently when practicing, with vulnerable inter-coastal and upper-back muscles.” Ever since taking the green supplement, my body has been feeling stronger and more elastic. Muscles have an increased safety range, and I barely experience any of the previous random discomforts.
– Alex R. (yoga student)
“You’ll never believe the progress in my flexibility using YOGABODY over a 2 week period.” I am 47, and before now I could never do the splits. After I started using YOGABODY I am so much more flexible it’s unbelievable. These two pictures speak for themselves. In the first I am 5 inches off the ground, and the second pic is after only 6 stretching sessions! I am also not as sore after workouts and my body recovers faster with YOGABODY. I am so pleased, thank you!
– Angela Surajpal (yoga student)
“I recently started yoga again and as I was taking YOGABODY, I did 3 days in a row and my body healed so much faster than normal.” I find it easier and more enjoyable to practice yoga when taking YOGABODY and I don’t dread the pain I would normally get when I stretch. YOGABODY makes me more positive during my workouts which is an added bonus because I feel awesome afterwards! This is my honest and sincere opinion about this product, yeah the green pills may look weird but they work!! So grateful I found them!
– Kim Chi Kim (yoga student)
“I use YOGABODY daily and work on the Gravity Poses.” I just got the laminated chart and it’s helping to remember how they are to be grouped. Almost down in splits on right side which is amazing. I wasn’t making as much progress until I started the YOAGBODY program. Actually getting closer on left side too – which I never dreamed I would be able to do!
– KC Suzy (yoga student)
“I have had huge flexibility gains in the 12 weeks I have used this product and the Gravity Pose techniques.” I have even been able to join a fitness center to do additional resistance training. I am 62, have had 2 serious spinal injuries at ages 16 & 28, and 7 spinal surgeries (3 lumbar, 4 cervical) in the past 44 years, along with several other invasive spinal procedures. Thanks to YOGABODY I’m doing better every day now!
– Luigi (yoga student)
“I do my gravity stretches and take YOGABODY every morning.” I love the CD as it contains plain instructions and at the same time makes me feel as if I’m taking a class in a group. I started practicing yoga about 20 years ago and I was quite flexible and bendy. Then I quit and lost a lot of movement. Some of the gravity poses help me feel like I still can move freely without feeling pain or tension. My work gives me neck, back and leg pain. After couple of weeks of YOGABODY Stretch and Gravity Yoga I felt no pain in my neck, my back hurts less, and my legs have become lighter. Before it was quite difficult for me to walk. After approximately 100 meters I wanted to stop, to sit, to have a rest. Now I’m walking at least 7 km a day and feel good. Thanks a lot! I feel the life coming back to my body.
– Galina (yoga student)
“I have been using your “gravity” poses to loosen my hips and they have done wonders for me.” I can sit in lotus pose for about 1 hour now without tremendous discomfort.
– Stephen McConnell (yoga student)
“I am so thankful for the YOGABODY Handbook.” It will surely deepen the benefits of my Bikram practice. Again many thanks and Namaste…
– Barbara (Bikram Yoga student)
“The stretches you laid out in your manual do wonders.” Lately I’ve found that if I bike my butt off and break a good sweat then do your long holds, my bad hamstring seems to improve much faster.
– Kris Waldron (Bikram Yoga teacher)
“The Gravity poses are amazingly effective, after just one week I feel a difference!” The YOGABODY Stretch supplements also seem to help me in kicking my coffee to the curb!
– Marianne Huus Mjøen (yoga student)
“I received the YOGABODY Handbook about ten days ago, and I have been using the gravity poses every day (sometimes twice a day) since then.” I have to admit that this program greatly exceeds my expectations! I am 56 and I have been practicing yoga since I was 14. The problem is that I am (was) as stiff as a board and that yoga was always a struggle for me because I was always so far from the posture that I could not relax and benefit from it. I therefore had long periods of discouragement and I felt like I got nowhere, even after so many years. At least, that’s until I tried your gravity poses. I think that a kind of a miracle is starting to happen! Gravity poses work – and damn well! For the first time in my life I see and feel progress! I obviously have to put in the work and allow time for more progress, but I trust the method and I know it is going to work wonders with a little patience, because I already feel quite different, I would say more “free”. Great product, Lucas, God bless you!”
– Paul Belizere (yoga student)
“I am 30 years old, and since I was 16 I have belonged to the Yog Sadhan Ashram.” I am also a Yoga Coach and have used the Ashram for my daily yoga practice, since I was 12 years old. I used to be very healthy naturally, but when I turned 23, I became very busy and concentrated on my studies, marriage and career. I stopped practicing every day, until I could not even do Padahastasana. My weight jumped to 83kg and I was very stiff. One day I found your site and read all your articles. It took two days, but I was convinced and changed my diet. I bought Spirulina, MSM, Chlorella, stopped eating fast food and started eating more raw vegetables like spinach, cabbage and also some plant foods. I was also a coffee boy before, but I cut it out. In one month I lost 10kg and now I can also do CHAKRA ASAN – can you believe it? Thank you so much!”

It’s not necessary to do warm-ups before you begin your Gravity Yoga practice each night, but many students find it’s a helpful way to transition from their busy day to their deep-stretching practice.

Do 10 squats before your Gravity Yoga practice, and you’ll love the way you feel.

Why Not Start Today?
The YOGABODY Flexibility Kit has been transformational for tens of thousands of students around the world, and the gravity practice sequence is now the base for group flexibility training classes taught in yoga studios worldwide—including my own.
My suggestion is to start today. What you’ve been doing up until now hasn’t been working, you know you’d like a more flexibility body, and there is a very good chance this will work for you—plus, it’s guaranteed. So why not?
Since the video and handbook elements are digital, it means you’ll get access right away, instantly. Your bonus materials, supplements, and props will ship out in the mail tomorrow, but you can start on your 15-min daily stretching program right away, no need to wait
Thanks for visiting YOGABODY, and I look forward to helping you double your flexibility.
p.s. Some students get really ambitious and want to stretch for 30 or even 60-minutes per day. You can certainly do that, it’s helpful, but I’d encourage you to first just focus on the 15-minute per day commitment. Stretching is most effective when done regularly rather than here and there for long sessions. The daily practice is where the magic lies… roll out you mat!
