A tale from the mat…
HOW YOGA RADICALLY CHANGED MY HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
“Six years ago, I walked into the hot room an overweight, middle-aged non-athlete with downward trending vitals.
After two months of regular bikram yoga practice (at least three times per week), my blood pressure settled back down to normal with no medication. Encouraged, I started going more frequently, upping my practice to at least 5 times per week. And an amazing thing happened. A lifelong problem of relentless anxiety suddenly ended! I realized one day that I was no longer cycling, ruminating, and worrying, which was my usual mental state. I kept going!!! After a year of practice, I had lost 30 pounds.”
WHY YOGA IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF MY DAILY ROUTINE
“If my middle-aged self could give my teenage self a single gift, it would be yoga. I cannot recommend this practice highly enough, especially for men of my age. Yoga is a powerful. It literally changes your brain, growing gray matter in the areas of reason, memory, and emotional regulation, while shrinking the reptilian amygdala, responsible for fight/flight, fear, and anxiety.”
HOW TO BUILD STRENGTH, FLEXIBILITY AND TONE
“And I’m happy to report that in six years, I have NOT worn spandex a single time! Ditch the cliches about yoga and soccer moms, and give it a try! Then stick with it. It takes some time for your body to change.”
WHY I KEEP GOING
