# 31 - Every Body is Different

Stretch only as far as your body allows – one day at a time and one inch per stretch. If the intensity of a particular stretch does not feel simply delicious, your body is probably not ready for this stretch just yet. Instead, try to hold postures longer for greater effect. Training a willing body to hold stretches for longer periods of time in symphony with your breath is a more accurate indication of progress than enabling an agitated body to twist itself into knots, or doing arm balances while holding your breath.
