The Power of Yoga for Men: A beginner's guide to building strength, mental clarity and emotional fitness (Paperback)
A friendly and accessible introduction to yoga for men.
Welcome to the mat. We're glad you're here.
Yoga has proven benefits for strength, flexibility, mental health and even sex drive. And yoga is for everyone, and for every body. You can do yoga if you're inflexible. You can do yoga if you love the gym – or if you hate it. You can do yoga if you run, cycle, or if your only hobby is box sets. Yoga will help you if you suffer from low self-esteem, stress, depression or anxiety.
Every man should have the chance to become the fuller, flexier version of himself. So the only question is: what's stopping you?
The Power of Yoga for Men offers:
- complete guidance through 40+ key yoga postures
- instructions for breath practices and meditations
- fully illustrated sequences
- first-person accounts from men who have harnessed the power of yoga in their own lives.
