Yoga for Guys

Join Jeff for this 4 week workshop.

Investment: $79. Includes 4 sessions and a one month membership once the 4 week session has ended. 

This series will introduce you to yoga poses and techniques to build flexibility, identify and build strength in weaker areas, relieve pain and focus the mind.

Yoga is for everyone, athletes included. Yoga works on strength, flexibility, balance, agility, endurance, core, and overall strength, among other things. Everyone benefits hugely by adding yoga to their training regimen. No matter your level of physical activity, you'll gradually improve mobility and get started on a path towards new fitness goals.

Yoga for Guys will work on:

Increasing flexibility, joint mobility and postural alignment (Practicing yoga increases flexibility and ease of movement, therefore increasing range of motion. In particular, athletes in sports that require swinging action (tennis, golf, etc.) can benefit greatly. Flexibility in general also helps to prevent injury)

Increasing joint mobility (Yoga helps strengthen all of the little stabilizing muscles that people tend to miss in other physical workouts and are vital in protecting your joints and spine (among other things)

Improving strength and muscle tone (No amount of weight-lifting with free weights will give you the strength that consistently holding up your own body weight will)

Improving Endurance (The endurance that the ease of yoga gives you lends to endurance sports like running, triathlons, and Iron Mans. When you learn to tune into your body and mind, everything can be a meditation—sports included. Yoga also helps you learn how to pace yourself: slow and steady, in it for the long haul)

Improving focus + productivity

Improving balance (Balancing poses in yoga improve overall balance in everything you do, preventing falls and injury.  When you learn how to be soft and go with the flow, you can more easily bend and are less likely to break or fall over)

Stress release and an opportunity to unwind from the busy-ness of your life

Eliminating the pressure and uncertainties around attending a regular drop-in class, this full spectrum course is designed to create a safe, welcoming and familiar space for men of all ages, level of physical fitness/flexibility, and experience with yoga.

We invite you to come as you are, and to join us in a movement, breath and mindfulness practice that will shift your perspective - away from the ideas and images you may have about yoga that reinforce a belief this powerful wellness practice isn’t for you.  Let us show you how to gently ease your body into postures without forcing or straining tight muscles, while simultaneously accessing your breath more fully and easily.

If interest and attendance in the workshop is high, we will look at having a regular ongoing Yoga for Guys class in our schedule.
