With its revolutionary approach to yoga and innovative, male-oriented instruction, Real Men Do Yoga will be the definitive guide for both novice and veteran men who are discovering the innumerable physical and mental benefits of yoga.
Satisfying the male fascination with sports and admiration for athletes are interviews with more than twenty pros, all of whom are enthusiastic yoga practitioners: football's Eddie George, Shannon Sharpe and Amani Toomer; baseball pitchers Barry Zito (2002 Cy Young Award winner) and Al Leiter, star hockey goalie Sean Burke and NBA superstar Kevin Garnett as well as pro golfers and tennis players.
Photos of sports stars doing yoga, such as football greats Dan Marino and Chris Carter, drive home a powerful message. Each chapter offers a combination of stretches and strength-builders that target and benefit specific areas:
In a sea of yoga books aimed at women, Real Men Do Yoga is an easily accessible, "non-New Agey" guidebook that takes something mysterious to American men and offers a reassuringly effective and practical guide that they'll actually use.
Yes, Real Men Do Yoga?
including some of America's greatest athletes!
"Yoga has made my entire body more flexible, I'm stronger in my upper body, and I'm living proof that yoga prevents injuries.''
-Eddie George, Heisman Trophy winner, NFL running back
"I've been doing yoga since 1995, and I practice my breathing and focusing exercises before every game.''
-- Kevin Garnett, NBA superstar
"In sports, you need balance, strength and flexibility, and yoga helps so much in each of those areas. It's definitely been a huge part of my success.''
-Sean Burke, NHL All-Star goaltender
"Yoga saved my career. I was facing back surgery, and tried yoga instead. Now my back is in great shape, plus the yoga is an unbelievable workout. I'm a total convert.''
--Justin Gimelstob, ATP tennis player
"Flexibility is the most important thing for a golfer. The yoga stretches made my swing longer-there's no question about it. The added range of motion enabled me to get a better turn and power through the ball.''
--J.L. Lewis, PGA Tour
This book's efficient, effective yoga routines target specific areas, including abs, legs and arms. The language is clear and straightforward-no weird yoga jargon, New Age philosophy, or Sanskrit names. This is a man's approach to yoga that will super-charge your performance, whether your game is golf, running, biking, tennis, basketball, skiing, swimming, or just spending some quality time with your spouse.
So stop stalling and find out today why 3.5 million real men, men like All Star pitcher Barry Zito, are already working out with yoga--and why you (or the man in your life) should be, too.
