Strength Yoga Exercises Benefit Men

Men who participate in sports activities regularly would also find it very helpful to include practicing strength yoga to improve their power and also to maintain their flexibility. Since many men participate in a relatively narrow range of sports activities, they tend to become less flexible over time. This lack of flexibility can make them more prone to injury as a result. Writer Will Gilbert, reporting for local station WPRI in Rhode Island, describes how yoga can be a lot tougher to do than you might think.

Yoga has been found to be the perfect fit for men.

“No, we love beginners, men should definitely do yoga. They get tight in their shoulders, their chest, and their hips.  They do a lot of repetitive sports, men tend to like to do a certain type of sport just one and they can get injuries sometimes with those sports. So it’s good to do yoga because yoga does flexibility and it helps to build strength, and you definitely need both,” said Kelly.
