Also as you said your already pretty flexible. My argument is that if your 5ft10, 330lbs and stiff as a rock,going to yoga for 2 hours of yoga every day, 30minutes stretching before and after every workout, is not necessarily the best approach, and many lifters pull muscles and have serious injuries and herniations not from heavy lifting but from "over stretching" the muscles, in the context of trying to pick a dollar off the floor after not touching there toes in over 5 years may tear something.
Further more I reason that when your used to squatting nice and tight, but now opened up your hip flexors, and increased your range of motion, your body is going to get mixed signals on when to stop and go, which will effect strength. I am not saying stretching or flexibility is bad, but it has to be done in moderation and sports/goal specific for the individual.
