A sequence for men

Cavemen

Now that I have highlighted the fact that there are very few yoga resources for men, I would be remiss in my duties to not offer a solution. So here it is: a sequence for men. This sequence addresses men’s issues primarily prostate health and depression. I used cavemen for my cover photo of this post because that is how many men feel they are viewed when they walk into a boutique yoga studio. This sequence you can do in the privacy of your own home judgement free. I do this sequence frequently in my own practice. Enjoy!
