Yoga for Men St George & Sutherland Community College

Yoga for Men

Yoga is great for men and these classes have been designed specifically for them. We will cover the most basic postures and aim to make the yoga session very accessible regardless of your level of fitness, with lots of options offered on a posture. Besides getting rid of stress and increasing flexibility, yoga improves cardiorespiratory function, weight, and body composition while increasing well-being, and improving self-efficacy.

The class is structured so it’s suitable for both beginners and experienced. A priority is that the yoga is enjoyable, easy to follow, and also allows a more experienced student to take options to build into a pose. We start a class with grounding, breathwork, and a warm-up, we then take the class into a series of peak postures that will cover most positions, standing, balance, kneeling, sitting, and on your back. Inversions are kept to a few simple and easy postures. We bring attention to the breathwork for each posture. The class is completed with breathwork and relaxation.
