When you’ve never tried yoga, it can be intimidating, especially if you’ve been scoping the jaw-dropping, super bendy, pretzel-like poses your girlfriend/wife practices each morning.
But relax: It’s actually the most basic postures—not the fancy ones—that provide you with the foundation of flexibility and strength every man needs.
Yoga has become increasingly popular with professional athletes, civil service workers (police officers, firefighters, correction officers) and it can have huge benefits for veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Let go of any ambition of trying to look extremely manly and focus on the awesomeness of the poses. Just promise us this: set the intention to eventually pop into a co-ed class!
