Asanas for men

Asanas beneficial for men

1. Uttanasana (Standing Forward Fold): 

Uttasana helps to stretch the muscles, increase blood circulation and is beneficial for relieving tension. It’s a great yoga pose for active men to nourish and reclaim their centre. A standing forward fold opens up the back body including the hamstrings, calves and knees. This pose is helpful in relieving tension in the spine, neck and back and can improve digestion as well.

If we practice slow, steady breathing along with this pose, it can also lower our blood pressure over time.

 

2. Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog)

This is a great yoga pose for men as it is a full body stretch which is a great warm-up and also helps to calm the mind. We often suffer from back pain due to chronic stiffness in the hamstrings and hips. It is also common for us to have very tight shoulders. Down Dog releases tightness in all those areas while building upper body strength.

 

3. Warrior Pose

Warrior Pose increases space and mobility in the shoulders, hips and knees where men need it the most. This is a great pose that generates great stability in and around the knee, perfect for high-impact workouts.

 

4. Bridge Pose:

Many men have tightness of the intercostal muscles and connective tissue surrounding the rib cage which can limit lung capacity. The bridge pose opens up the chest and releases those tight muscles, allowing for easier breathing and also helps with insomnia, fatigue, anxiety and headaches. Over time, practicing this mudra helps in getting relief from all upper respiratory problems.

 

5. Boat Pose (Navasana)

This asana is especially beneficial for men as it stimulates the prostate gland, helps reduce tension in the pelvic region and strengthens the digestive system.

 

6. Bhujangasana or Cobra Pose

This yoga pose is great for male athletes and anyone who does a lot of physical work as it strengthens the lower back. Any sport that involves running, jumping, or sprinting causes strain on the lower back and the cobra pose can help build strength in that area.

Decoding The Yoga Sutra

Learn about:

  • The true meaning of yoga and spirituality
  • Yoga principles to improve your life
  • The inner workings of the mind
  • Control and regulation of the mind
  • Achieve excellence and bliss.
  • The true meaning of enlightenment and how to achieve it.
  • How to inculcate the yoga sutras in your life.

Decoding the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali does just that. It decodes and simplifies the wealth of information contained in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Maharshi Patanjali realized that the mind is the repository of all the happiness and miseries experienced in one’s life. He delved into the mysteries of the mind, detailed its inner workings and devised methods to eliminate life’s miseries.

The modern-day, despite technological and social advancements, is rife with problems. Maybe more so than in the past. Depression, anxiety, stress and a host of other illnesses are on the rise in today’s world owing to hectic lifestyles. Many mainstream solutions to these problems including retail therapy, vacations, materialism, and even medication only address the symptoms. We believe that this is a temporary solution at best. Until the root cause is dealt with, no real change can occur.

In this book, we will walk you through Patanjali’s teachings and methods to tame the mind. We have simplified the language, removed myths, superstitions and curated critical information from the original texts. What you get is rational, logical, practical and easy to understand information that can be incorporated into your lifestyle. By addressing the root cause of all suffering, you will start to see profound changes in your daily life.

Decoding the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali aims to help the 21st-century man through ancient yogic wisdom.
