and with the static stretching, I don't mean to do that before you workout. I'm talking about after a workout or on it's own with the intent on increasing range of motion (which I do in the form of yoga).
I don't have nearly as many problems with injuries every since I started doing yoga, mostly in my lowerback
Nope, it helps with performance though so it's very important.
Increasing range of motion with static stretching has nothing to do with range of motion while moving, also having tendons and joints that are too compliant/loose will make you less powerful and increase your injury risk. The yoga benefits would be from body awareness, proprioception and understanding how everything lines up most efficiently. Yoga is great but not because of any flexibility benefits.
