I've been lurking for awhile and have decided to make myself known by asking a question.
I know that when lifting weights it is important to give your muscles at least 24 hours to rest / heal (depending on the intensity of your workout). Does anyone know whether you should likewise give muscles a chance to recuperate between sessions of yoga / Pilates / etc... ? It seems to me that stretching could contribute to small tears in the muscles which would in turn merit rest between sessions for overall muscle health as well as more timely flexibility advances (just as strength is actually gained faster when muscles are allowed adequate time to heal).
What say you?
