Why Man Flow Yoga?

It’s easier if I start at the beginning, back in 2012…

My first yoga experience was on complete accident.

As it so happened, I was already planning on going to the gym after visiting the tailor, and a class was starting in the next 15 minutes. I approached the instructor, wearing my lacrosse hoodie and sweatpants, and asked whether or not this class would be useful for me.

While looking for the tailor, I wandered into a Bikram yoga studio. I had always wanted to try yoga, but the opportunity just hadn’t presented itself.

She told me that it would really help with my flexibility, my endurance, and toning up my muscles. I definitely needed to work on flexibility. And who wouldn’t want to improve muscle tone? So I said, okay, let’s do it.

What happened in the next 90 minutes completely shattered every preconception I had ever had about yoga.

Not even halfway through the class, I was drenched in my own sweat and utterly exhausted. My legs were shaking, my arms were exhausted (even though we weren’t using any weights), and I wanted nothing more than to leave the packed, overheated room and exit into what would have been a refreshingly cold winter day. But I stayed.

I was moving my body and exercising in completely new ways, and feeling soreness in muscles I didn’t even know I had. I also knew that by challenging myself I was becoming stronger, and there was no way I was going to give up mid-workout. (There were women there who were at least double, maybe triple my age. If they could do it, then I certainly could!)

When the class finally finished, I exited the room with an immense feeling of accomplishment. That 90-minute Bikram yoga class is still the hardest workout I’ve ever done. I knew at that moment that yoga would be a regular part of my workout routine – maybe for the rest of my life.

I kept doing yoga. Initially it was because I didn’t like not being able to do something, and I wanted to get a solid grasp on this new form of exercise. But after a few weeks of doing yoga, I started to notice some significant changes in my body.

dean man flow yoga poses

In the first month, I noticed

  • Greatly improved flexibility, mobility, and range of motion.
  • More strength and endurance (particularly in my legs, hips, and core.)
  • Improved core strength and stability.
  • A stronger spine, increased spinal mobility, and increased back strength.
  • Increased body and muscular awareness.
  • Decreased recovery time, less soreness.
  • Improved breathing and breathing awareness.

My body was definitely changing.

Yoga was making me better at my other workouts, and I was getting stronger in ways that I never had before.

My body and breath awareness skyrocketed. Flexibility was drastically improving – it was downright uncomfortable at first, but my body was becoming SO much more mobile the more I worked into the discomfort of muscle tightness.

Does yoga build power and strength? I’m going to answer that question with this 12-minute strength-focused yoga routine using floor poses to help you build core strength, hip strength, and work into your hip mobility. It’s great for taking care of your spine, getting rid of back pain, and helping address underlining causes of back pain for people who spend too much time sitting.

It’s also a workout that your toddler might find entertaining enough to jump in on themselves. If this happens, try not to worry too much about your form. Enjoy your time with them. :-)

It’s easier if I start at the beginning, back in 2012…

My first yoga experience was on complete accident.

As it so happened, I was already planning on going to the gym after visiting the tailor, and a class was starting in the next 15 minutes. I approached the instructor, wearing my lacrosse hoodie and sweatpants, and asked whether or not this class would be useful for me.

While looking for the tailor, I wandered into a Bikram yoga studio. I had always wanted to try yoga, but the opportunity just hadn’t presented itself.

She told me that it would really help with my flexibility, my endurance, and toning up my muscles. I definitely needed to work on flexibility. And who wouldn’t want to improve muscle tone? So I said, okay, let’s do it.

What happened in the next 90 minutes completely shattered every preconception I had ever had about yoga.

Not even halfway through the class, I was drenched in my own sweat and utterly exhausted. My legs were shaking, my arms were exhausted (even though we weren’t using any weights), and I wanted nothing more than to leave the packed, overheated room and exit into what would have been a refreshingly cold winter day. But I stayed.

I was moving my body and exercising in completely new ways, and feeling soreness in muscles I didn’t even know I had. I also knew that by challenging myself I was becoming stronger, and there was no way I was going to give up mid-workout. (There were women there who were at least double, maybe triple my age. If they could do it, then I certainly could!)

When the class finally finished, I exited the room with an immense feeling of accomplishment. That 90-minute Bikram yoga class is still the hardest workout I’ve ever done. I knew at that moment that yoga would be a regular part of my workout routine – maybe for the rest of my life.

I kept doing yoga. Initially it was because I didn’t like not being able to do something, and I wanted to get a solid grasp on this new form of exercise. But after a few weeks of doing yoga, I started to notice some significant changes in my body.

In the first month, I noticed

  • Greatly improved flexibility, mobility, and range of motion.
  • More strength and endurance (particularly in my legs, hips, and core.)
  • Improved core strength and stability.
  • A stronger spine, increased spinal mobility, and increased back strength.
  • Increased body and muscular awareness.
  • Decreased recovery time, less soreness.
  • Improved breathing and breathing awareness.

My body was definitely changing.

Yoga was making me better at my other workouts, and I was getting stronger in ways that I never had before.

My body and breath awareness skyrocketed. Flexibility was drastically improving – it was downright uncomfortable at first, but my body was becoming SO much more mobile the more I worked into the discomfort of muscle tightness.

Work on more than just stretching - this workout also addresses strength, muscle activation, and mobility.
