Yoga For Men

Yoga for Men

with John Clark

This class focuses on the common problem areas many men have, including the shoulders and hips. While working to open these parts of the body, there is also a cultivation of strength through the poses. This combination of stretching and strengthening can be challenging at times, but throughout there is encouragement of the relaxing and rejuvenating benefits of yoga. 

John Clark began practising yoga regularly in 2005, starting out with Gerry’s beginners course here at balance. He has continued to develop his practice and undertook his teacher training in 2017. John firmly believes in the mental and physical benefits of yoga, and knows from his own experience that incorporating yoga into your life with increase the quality of any other activity, sporting or otherwise, that you do.
