The power of yoga for men : a beginners guide to building strength, mental clarity and emotional fitness

Packham, Caleb Jude (author.). Chapman, Jarod, (author.).


Summary: "This is a guide for guys who are curious about yoga (but think it's just for women) or for those who have done a class years ago and were intimidated by their inflexibility. It is for those huge numbers of men who suffer, often in secret, from anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or a general sense of malaise and/or purposelessness. It is for those men who walk past a yoga studio, look inside hopefully and then assume it's not for them. Or those men who think they don't have time, or the right body, or are too nervous or embarrassed, who don't want to look stupid, or appear to be struggling. Of course these are the men who truly need yoga. Now, thanks to this book, they can learn about, and experience, the central healing tenets of yoga, without having to leave their home. They needn't talk to anyone about their experiment, if they don't want to - with the friendly guidance and instructions inside this book to help the reader wake up to yoga and all its benefits. This book busts common myths about yoga (and its suitability for men), offering a no-nonsense guy-friendly guide for those who are brave and curious enough to roll out their mat, sit down and take a breath. It's for any man who has tried it his way, by pushing pain, emotions or worries down, and is now ready for a change. This handbook is like a detox package - for all those suffering from restrictive and toxic notions about masculinity - instead helping to give every man a chance to become a fuller, flexier version of himself"--Publisher's description.
