What Can Yoga Classes Do for Men?
The benefits of yoga for men are massive. Here’s five REAL benefits of Yoga for Men that NO men’s magazine will ever tell you! I have experienced these benefits in my own life, and they are ones that can transform your life too.
1. The Melting Away of the Competitive Spirit
Men are especially haunted by the spirit of competition that’s often bred into us from youth. The activation of that competitive spirit into your adult life can make you envious of others, if not vicious at times, both in the work place or even amongst friends or family.
Keep your eyes on your own mat. This is your practice, and your worth has nothing to do with the person next to you!
2. The Full Spectrum of Health, Not Merely Fitness
Unlike most gyms, men’s magazines, and fitness regimes, a yoga practice sees total health as more than being ripped. You can be ripped with six-pack abs and be totally riddled with anxiety, depression, rage, and more. How is that health?
If our mind is not calm and our heart is not open, there is no full spectrum health.
You might have nice abs, a great ass, and killer legs, but ultimately, who cares? Besides gross strength, I want pain-free movement and flexibility. I want to exist peacefully and radiantly alive in this body. Do this for your own pleasure, not to receive the validation from others.
3.Becoming Aloof to Public Opinion
Isn’t it a burden to be overly concerned about what other people think of you? It’s just exhausting!
With yoga, you dial in to your personal internal compass of health, diet, ethics, and ways to relate to people. You come to a deep understanding that this body is a gift in this short life, and you’re here to give instead of take. Once you embrace that spirit, you will be forever after aloof to public opinion.
4. Stepping Out of Your Ego
Yoga classes can help you notice degrees of authenticity. It brings an awareness to when you are genuine, and also when you’re being driven by an agenda dominated by more base desires. By setting intentions to be true and authentic, you will eventually learned to shed shallow expectations which could blow up your ego.
As your ego deflates, your true self finally has room to grow.
There you have it—real benefits of yoga for men—and you WILL NOT get this from the newsstands or in men’s mags! If you’re doing yoga right you’re going to get a complete, internal self makeover. So what are you waiting for? Sign-up online for yoga classes in Delray Beach today!
