It may no longer be Men's Health Week, but that doesn't mean that the gentlemen, bros and dudes out there can fall back on their old habits and let themselves go. In fact, they may want to take up a new fitness activity. Finding a Dahn Yoga community may be a good idea.
Just ask Eli Epstein, the lifestyle columnist for Business Insider. A while back, he tried to take a yoga class, but was introduced to a form that included a hot, sweltering (and smelly) room.
Although he was initially put off by it, he decided to give yoga one more shot by taking a gentler beginners' class. Epstein's decision was partly based on his need to recovery from knee surgery.
And how did it go this time? Well, it may have been relaxing, but it was still work.
"Maybe that's the point though. I feel pretty loose this morning," Epstein wrote in his column.
There are several potential benefits of yoga for men, according to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, a division of the National Institutes of Health. Among them are improvements in blood pressure, heart rate, joint health and mood.
