“There is no other form of Exercise aside from yoga that enables such a strong activation with every system of your body at once.” – Matt Miller, Founder of Broga (Yoga for Men).
If you are thinking of taking up Yoga but are still convinced that it is just for females, Matt Miller, Super Heavy Weight Champion is here to change your perspective – for good!
Yoga is a great way to improve your flexibility and strength, toning and growing muscle mass is inevitable. Yoga assists core and upper body strength, primarily focusing on arms, shoulders, chest and back. It is no surprise that men doing yoga have the best physiques and stamina when it comes to other sports such as Football, Rugby or even Body Building.
However the benefits of yoga go beyond the physical:
Keeps Cravings at Bay.
Can help you lose body fat and tone up as Yoga focuses on helping you regain control of your mind and focus on what you really need to fuel your body.
Yoga helps repair muscles.
Yoga is hugely beneficial in working out stiffness from other sports. When muscles are fatigued, they build up with lactic acid, whilst yoga, which stretches and releases tension, helps flush that away. Runners in particular find yoga the best activity after a long endurance jog.
Yoga restores energy levels.
Yoga practice doesn’t deplete your body of all of your energy after a class — like say, a gym workout, where your body is entirely fatigued after your session. Instead, it actually increases your vigour, making you feel more aware and refreshed.
Yoga trains your focus
By combining mental, physical and emotional strength, you have to train your mind to shut down and stop thinking about work/what you’re going to have for dinner.
Yoga has benefits in the bedroom!
You will be more flexible, and more relaxed which means you’ll be in the mood more often and less likely to argue with your significant other.
