Blokes only

We are sick of hearing blokes who think yoga is only for women… this is far from the truth. This course will expel that myth.

What to expect

This 4 week course is designed specifically for men.

If you have been considering starting yoga but feel intimidated because you think it’s only women, or you don’t feel flexible enough, or perhaps you’re worried you’ll look a bit daft… then this course is for you.

We will break the myth that yoga is for women, and that you have to be flexible to try it.

Over the 4 weeks you’ll learn sun salutations, basic standing, seated and upside down poses as well as specific breathing exercises. We’ll work on those tight hips & hamstrings as well as the shoulders.

Be prepared to work hard!

You might sweat, you might even swear.

You will increase flexibility, strength & stamina.

You will laugh.

You might cry. (I hope not, but you might)

You’ll experience some dynamic yoga (to get you sweating) and some yin yoga (to increase flexibility and help calm the mind)

This course is intended to help you feel confident enough to join a general class after the 4 weeks.

Who is it for?

This course is for you if:

  • You’ve been fancying trying yoga but haven’t got round to trying it yet
  • You want to find out what all the fuss is about
  • You want to feel confident to join in general yoga classes
  • You want to increase strength, stamina & flexibility as well as calm the mind
  • You’re ready and willing to give it a try, in a safe & fun environment

Who is it not for?

This course is NOT for you if:

  • You’re not a bloke (sorry ladies!)
  • You’re an experienced yogi already – this is for beginners (or nearly beginners)
  • You’re not ready to try something new
  • You think yoga is too easy for you (although I challenge you to try it!)
