WHY DO A YOGA CLASS FOR MEN ONLY?
A lot of men are looking for the benefits of yoga, like a quieter mind and toned body, but men have all kinds of reasons NOT to do yoga, like “I’m not flexible” or “it’s not a real workout.” Basically we don’t want to look ridiculous and we like to sweat.
In this six week series we’ll study the basics together. Even if you’ve done a lot of yoga, we’ll hold the poses a little longer to gain strength and a deeper understanding of each position.
We’ll also explore the parts of yoga that are less commonly taught like pranayama (breathing), meditation, and “yoga off the mat.”
The goal is to create a supportive environment and community of men who want to practice together. If the series goes well, we will make it a regular class.

There are many causes for tight hips – sitting at a desk or on a plane, riding a bike, stress and anxiety, running, overexertion, poor posture, the list goes on.
We lack flexibility when we have tight hips & hamstrings. When hip flexors are restricted, they pull down and forward on the pelvis, tilting the pelvis forward and compress the lower back. Tight hamstrings limit hip extension, which rounds the back when bending forward.
Join us as we dive into the hips & hamstrings with a series of poses designed to gently release the stiffness in the lower body. We will spend time exploring the anatomy of this region as we use the breath to gently open and lengthen these muscles.

In this specialized workshop, students will hold traditional restorative yoga poses and receive Aromatherapy and light Massage by Gizella & Margo.
Restorative Yoga helps to relieve the effects of stress by allowing the central nervous system to calm while the body is fully supported with the use of props (bolsters, blankets, blocks etc), stimulating deep relaxation and a sense of restoring and renewing your mind, body, and spirit.
All levels are welcome!
