Yoga for Stiff Guys 14-Day Challenge

Beginner | 14 days | 1 class/day

Welcome

Yoga classes can be daunting when the super flexible instructor easily shifts through stretches and poses that you find challenging due to tightness and limited mobility. This yoga challenge for stiff guys completely removes the intimidation factor, making each class accessible to the average tight guy, while pushing your limits in a way that allows you to experience significant improvements in flexibility and strength. The order of the daily classes are designed to chip away at the stiffness in your muscles and connective tissue so you see and feel the difference by the end. 

Remember, yoga is not just for flexible people. Yoga helps tighter people become more flexible! Whether you are tight from being an athlete or from spending too much time at a desk, this challenge will increase your mobility and flexibility.
