Paul on Yoga. I can do strict handstand push-ups, double unders, ring muscle ups, and I power clean over #225. I cannot do splits, super twisty poses, and other challenging poses like lotus. Maybe one day, but not today. I am a CrossFitter and a personal trainer, and I work on my mobility everyday. Yoga is for everyone, and these are the poses I use. Poses that work … and poses that will improve your mobility.

Standing Yoga Poses Part 2
The Standing Yoga Poses from the Crescent family (indudalasana) may be used to mobilize the obliques and lats. Single leg variations are also useful for building balance. The asanas (poses) shown in this article help mobilize the spine both from a side bend and various extensions.
Practicing yoga is a deeply intimate, personal experience, which is why many people choose to start a home practice. This is where you get to be one with your body. It’s a place to move into the breath and release tension in the muscles that so easily gather throughout your days. To really let go, though, you need a little help from someone else; you need a yoga adjustment.
