Yoga for Men
When it comes to yoga, most men who spend their time weight-lifting at the gym shake their head and brush this five-thousand year-old tradition off as a woman’s or elderly form of physical activity. They equate yoga with soft-flowing movements, dimly-lit rooms, burning incense and maybe a few chanted “Oms.”
In reality, yoga can be a great resource for strength training, flexibility, and injury prevention, for both men and women.
