Yoga is Not Just for Women: Start a new ‘Regi-Men”

Contributed by Melanie Pefinis, Certified Yoga and Pilates instructor

The Practice of yoga can be many things; for some it is a relaxation technique. For others it is a stretching discipline. But where men are concerned it is especially vital as it provides a technique for dealing with the effects of years of overuse, sports injury, repetitive motions and the bumps and bruises of a life well-lived.

While women often flock to Yoga classes, the benefits for men are extensive. Yoga promotes flexibility which increases restorative blood flow to tight regions and it provides a way to work around chronic tightness, immobility and pain. For Golfers and Tennis Players who constantly move in repetitive motion, Yoga offers stretches that will correct these imbalances.

Check out these poses that will help Golfers and Tennis Players improve their strength, balance and flexibility:
