Beginner, Intermediate and Experienced Classes of Yoga for Men in Adelaide
Yoga for Men
Yoga for men and general class is at 7.30pm on Monday nights
Here at Coast Yoga, we believe that all ages and genders can benefit from yoga. There are untold benefits of yoga for men and it is being adopted by many of the male population to bolster bodies and minds in all kinds of ways. Men’s yoga builds strength and flexibility for tight hamstrings and hips. It helps with over training in the gym by stretching tight pecs and releasing shoulder stiffness. It helps with resilience by lowering the chances of injury in high performance sport.
Coast Yoga will offer a 75 minute designated yoga class for men, once a week on Mondays at 7.30pm. Start any Monday.
Yoga is a great compliment to many traditional sporting activities. It strengthens, lengthens and tones muscles from the smallest to the biggest. It builds stamina, allows the yogi to listen to the body, preventing over-exertion or joint damage, and promotes flexibility. Our men’s yoga classes are also a great counterbalance if you are frequently performing repetitive exercises or sports. Many sportsmen now choose to do a short practice before key races or games to enhance concentration and loosen muscles during the main event. In addition, it will help to reduce any post-sport aches and pains.
Yoga for focus
Correct yoga practice can improve brain function more than any other physical activity. It has been shown to drastically improve memory, productivity, confidence and energy levels. Many employers are seeing the benefits in staff who have regular access to yoga classes.
Men’s Yoga Classes for Relaxation
Yoga is known to help relieve stress and promote better sleep. The poses along with the yogic abdominal breathing help to reduce anxiety, depression and fatigue. Yoga also lessens the body’s production of the stress hormone, cortisol – this reduces the risk of thyroid problems, lowers blood pressure, strengthens muscle tissue and helps reduce inflammation.
Yoga is comparable to weightlifting for building lean muscle – one of the many benefits of yoga for men. It promotes spinal flexibility, bolsters core strength and drastically improves posture.
Classes for health benefits
Practice boosts the immune system, improves digestion, encourages mindfulness and can aid weight loss.
Top yoga poses for men
In our classes, you will come across many different poses that will benefit the specific needs of the male physique:
- WARRIOR ONE: a well-known posture that stretches the hips and shoulders
- DOWNWARD FACING DOG: a movement and pose that will loosen tight hamstrings, calves, hips and shoulders
- UPWARD FACING DOG: perfect for men who are sat behind a desk all day as it works on the hip flexors and abdomen
- STANDING FORWARD FOLD: this will open the hips, the back of the legs and the back, promoting lower body strength and flexibility
