Top 10 Benefits of Yoga for Men

While more and more women are beginning to practice yoga, men are still shy of this ancient science because they see yoga as “glorified stretching” with no strength required. The fact is, yoga is the best way to increase flexibility, decreases the probability of injury, increases overall stability and enhances athletic abilities. In India, earlier yogis were men and the majority the senior yoga gurus are also men, who are helping and enlightening the human race towards yoga, so even a thought that yoga is not a male thing is a myth. Here I am projecting some of the magical benefits men can get from yoga.

Yoga has proved itself best way to boost muscle strength. It builds lean muscles through utilizing your body weight and increases resistance power. Besides, it helps normalize the blood flow and builds muscles faster.

2. Reduces pain and injuries

Studies have shown that with only 20 minutes of yoga everyday men can be more concentrated and focused. They are able to overcome all hindrances, and even reach beyond their potentialities, improve memory retention and build energy. They are also able to challenge their body limits and that without getting over aggressive.
