It might start in your mid-to-late twenties: you return to the hockey rink and the next day your body feels stiff.

Are you getting old?

It increases into your thirties and forties. You are very active, you go to gym, you play hockey or basketball, and you are in decent shape.

But every morning you feel stiff as dead wood. It hurts you to move. Your back hurts. At first you might attribute it old age: you start to think that a stiff body naturally results once you are past thirty.

This is not true! Don’t believe it, because you can feel as good as you did in your prime.

Yoga, done with proper techniques, will bring your body back to balance. Every day fuzz builds up on your bones and, over the course of years, it builds more and more.

That’s the bad news.

The good news is it can be melted away to bring reduce your stiffness, tightness and soreness.

In the Yoga for Stiff Guys workshop we start the process for you. Over four sessions you will learn the basics and can expect to be challenged by learning to move your body in different ways. Every guy, from roofers to accountants to drivers to teachers and anyone in-between, can benefit from yoga.

Most students remark they did not realize the work would take so much effort, but it is all doable.

How Men Benefit from Yoga:

  • increase mobility
  • touch your toes
  • reduce back pain and over muscles soreness
  • Play sports without next-day soreness
  • Calm and focus your mind.
  • Makee your body feel carefree like when you were 18

Do I Need to Be Flexible to Do Yoga?

"I'm not flexible.  I can't touch my toes. I'm  not suitable for yoga." With yoga expect to touch your toes - often in the very first class. Give your body some loving care by lubricating and activating core muscles, hips, and hamstrings. Yoga awakens the body to its optimal capacity. My first yoga teacher Kaila Kukla drew inspiration from Erich Shiffman,

Donald Trump, Flexibility, and Yoga
