Why should you incorporate yoga into your lives? Yoga can be really helpful to bring more control, flexibility, strength, power, endurance, better sleep etc.

In this video, we are going to work the super essential and effective yoga poses for men. So, let’s get started with working the entire body with these simple yoga poses. All you need is a mat and some comfortable clothing.

Hold all of these poses for at least 5 breaths of breathing in and out.

1, Downward Facing Dog: Open your fingers wide and walk the feet in. Keep your arms shoulder-width and legs hip-width. Make sure you breathe into your abdomen. This pose can be great for stretching your entire body, especially the hamstrings, the calves, the shoulders and your back. As you exhale, sink the feet in towards the mat. Lengthen the arms, stretch your tailbone.

2. Plank: This can be done anywhere, anytime and is a great pose to work your entire body, especially the core. Get into plank position, elbows in. You can also modify this position if needed by putting your feet down. Press those heels back and pull your hands towards the toes. With each exhale, squeeze the abdominals.

3. Pigeon pose: Bring your right knee in, open the hips so your feet comes forward a little bit. This is a really effective hip opening stretch, working your knees and back. Place your fingers on the mat,stretching your hip. Walk the arms forward and place your shoulders back.
