We love when a male pro athlete or celebrity declares his love for yoga to the press, but we’re more impressed by the everyday guy who hits the mat for his own health, not because he wants to look like Adam Levine (although, ain’t nothing wrong with that). Finally a little something about yoga for men, it’s out there so let us help you find it.
MensFitness.com recently put together a list of the top 10 yoga poses for guys. When you think about yoga for men, there are absolutely the go-to yoga poses. “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 practices each morning. But relax: It’s actually the most basic postures—not the fancy positions—that provide you with the foundation of flexibility and strength that every man needs.” Thanks MensFitness. We’re huge fans of anything that gets people to the mat, especially when it speaks to making it accessible. Yeah to yoga for men!
Amen to that.
According to the article, the top yoga poses for men include Mountain Pose because it strengthens and returns flexibility to the feet; Bridge Pose to stretch the front side of the body and Crescent Lunge for a deep hip flexor stretch. So guys; no more excuses. Yoga for men is here and these yoga poses can get you on the mat!
