Four Types of Guys Benefit From Yoga — You One of Them? (Yoga Challenge, Week 8)

It’s a privilege for OlderBeast to publish this guest post by Dean Pohlman, CEO & Founder of Man Flow Yoga. MFY is a great online resource for guys new to, or advancing in, yoga for fitness. I’ve been using it as part of my routine and I really like it. Thanks for your perspectives here, Dean! -Mark T.

In my experience, there are four types of guys who benefit tremendously from trying yoga. Are you one of them?

Unfortunately, some guys who would benefit from yoga can’t get past the popular misconceptions that it’s for girls, too spiritual, or isn’t hard enough. But if you’re secure enough in your masculinity to give yoga a chance (yes, I’m calling you insecure if your excuse for not doing yoga is “no way, yoga is for women!”), then invest a few minutes to see if one of these “yoga types” described below sounds like you.

Whatever type you may be, the bottom line is that doing yoga at least twice a week will help you move better, feel better, and even look better. Read on to learn how!
