Yoga… the four letter word that strikes fear and dread into men everywhere. Feelings of stretching, calmness, quietness start to rise up and contradict everything that we as men feel a typical workout should be.
I remember my first introduction to Yoga was in the old Tony Horton Program P90X. If any of you have tried this, it’s 90 minutes of being patient, endless vinyasas, downward dogs, cranes, sweat, and even Ohms at the end. I mean, seriously, who likes doing Ohms??? And if you’re trying to get a workout done in the morning, I always felt weird trying to project out 5 nice long Ohms when my family is quietly sleeping just down the hall…
But maybe there are some benefits to yoga? I mean, Tony Horton, a celebrity fitness trainer and all around 58 year old badass, claims if he could only one workout for the rest of his life, it’d be Yoga. So there has to be some benefits right?
After doing some research, I found 7 benefits that you may not have thought about when it comes to adding in some Yoga to your life. So read up and then bust out that dusty old yoga mat and downward doggin’ it.
There are so many different benefits from adding in some simple yoga routines, even if it’s just simply in the morning to get yourself going before you start your day.
If you are ready to take your Yoga practice to the next level, I want to invite you to try the 3 Week Yoga Retreat in Beachbody On Demand. It’s three weeks of studying with yoga professionals in a fun atmosphere and even train with Tony Horton’s own personal Yoga ‘guy’ (you may remember him, it’s Ted from P90X2 and P90X3… he had the sick crane to handstand moves that really made me think that Yogis are a little badass).
