MEN’S YOGA with TIM
Mens Yoga 10 Week Course – Every Tuesday night 7.15 – 8.15pm, Starting October 11
Subsidised by RightMate – INFORMATION/BOOKING
Mens Yoga Casual class – every Thursday 7.15-8.15pm TIMETABLE/BOOKING
These classes are especially designed to help men get the most out of yoga, both physically and mentally and are suitable for men with no previous yoga experience.
Men can have specific challenges with yoga. For example, they may be strong, but are often less flexible. This can mean particular types of poses take a bit more time or need a particular approach. Geelong City Yoga’s men’s classes focus on meeting these challenges. Classes are taught in a supportive, non-competitive environment.
I am constantly amazed how Tim can keep an eye on so man
y at one time and cater for each individual and still keep the class flowing.
Men find yoga can help greatly with agility, functional strength, stress reduction and overall increase in vitality. It can perfectly complement other sporting and fitness activities. However unfortunately men often believe yoga is suitable only for ‘bendy young women’ and they are uneasy about being the odd one out in a ‘regularly’ class. This class is for them 🙂
Tim Oddie is very experienced in teaching yoga to men, including weekly classes with the Geelong Cats, AFL Football Team for 12 seasons (2007 – 2018).
More recently he has been involved in a ground breaking research project with Deakin University proving the great physical and mental benefits of Yoga for Men –
