Due to the fact, that I have a very tight (not elastic) body, I realized at the time, that Yang Hatha yoga practice alone would not be enough for me to loosen it up. In order to move even a millimeter deeper into a particular asana, I had to linger much longer than it was classically provided. Fortunately, I came across this methodology, which has qualitatively complemented my personal Sadhana“. Mihhail Duzenko
