Question: Will Doing Yoga Make Me Sore?

Answer: It is not uncommon to experience sore muscles after doing yoga, especially if you are just starting out or practice infrequently. Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness usually occurs a day or two after exercising, which differentiates it from the sudden and immediate pain you would feel from pulling a muscle (read more on how to prevent yoga injuries). Yoga can cause soreness, even if you are in good physical shape, because it encourages you to use muscles that are otherwise neglected.

A hot bath can help relieve soreness. Sometimes it feels good to do some light stretching. If you continue to do yoga regularly, you will likely discover you experience less soreness.
