So a quick description of the situation.
I'm a 24 year old guy. I have been very physically active for almost my whole life up until about 22. During the past few years due to preoccupation of my time from work and university, I gained some weight, frequently stress out and lost some muscle mass. After getting back into gym training and cycling I managed to more or less return my previous figure, however I am now looking to improve myself. One of the things that i want to improve is my flexibility, as I have an extremely rigid body. I can barely get my fingers past my knees when bending down (I am 189cm (6ft3").
I decided that Yoga would be a good solution to my problems, as I can practice it at home and it will also help me when i'm stressing out. The problem is that even after downloading numerous applications and watching Youtube videos, I cannot even perform a simple beginners exercise such as sitting down with crossed legs and a straight back.
Does anyone have any suggestions and/or tips for me?
Thanks in advance,
