*Please note that my Men’s Yoga Classes have now ended. I held my last class on Monday 9th December 2019. Thank you to all the guys who joined me over the 2 1/2 years that I ran the class some of whom came almost every single week! The dedication from these guys was incredible and it was an honour to teach you week in week out. It was wonderful to hold space for you all and to see so many guys try yoga for the first time who might not have otherwise done so. Unfortunately due to changes in my personal commitments I am no longer able to run this class but you are more than welcome to join me at one of my other classes. Please see my Classes page for my up-to-date running schedule (updated weekly).
Yoga is for men too!
Even though I am no longer running my “men only” classes I do run four mixed ability classes during the week which are open to men and women of all abilities from beginners to those with more experience.
Yoga is good for everyone regardless of gender, age or ability. In fact my early interest in yoga came about on account of my Dad practising yoga when I was growing up and the key founders of modern day yoga were all men: B.K.S. Iyengar, T.K.V. Desikachar, Tirumalai Krishnamacharya and Vishnudevananda Saraswati to name but a few.
In terms of what yoga can do for you, the myriad benefits from practising yoga include increased range of motion around the joints and improving overall mobility, releasing tightness and tension in the shoulders and hips, freeing up the hamstrings and creating flexibility in the spine. Not to mention helping to create steady focus, more efficient breathing, improving balance, providing time for relaxation, improving posture and increasing core strength…the list goes on.
On account of the above benefits yoga is also a great complement for guys who are already engaged in another sport but also of benefit to those who perhaps are currently less active and looking for a non-impact form of movement – incorporating strength as well as flexibility – not to mention benefits for managing stress and boosting relaxation.
