We men are functional beings, and everything we do must also fulfill some kind of benefit. That's why we not only try to clear our heads and reduce our stress, but also to achieve our fitness goals. Lose weight, build strength, fight back pain or become more flexible - or ideally all of these together.
What many men don't know: Yoga can help us achieve those very goals. But the benefits of yoga also go far beyond the physical component, which is what makes it so valuable to us: our yoga practice leads to better concentration, it helps us deal with stress more confidently, and even leads to improved organ function. Not only the German national soccer team knows that yoga is the perfect complement for the active, balanced and focused man.
How often should you practice yoga?
As often as possible, of course. All joking aside. Because, as with any other sport, it is recommended to listen to yourself first. How am I feeling today? Do I have sore muscles or other aches and pains? What do my mind and body need today? Do I really feel like doing yoga right now?
We don't practice 7 days a week from morning to night, but when we feel like it and look forward to the practice and the feeling afterwards. And if we don't feel like it, we just go for a run or a kick.
This is what happens when you practice yoga regularly.
