A couple years back, I spoke to a young man by the name of Dean Pohlman. I inadvertently found Dean when I was doing my research on different types of yoga as I was learning for myself and my clients. Dean in particular had an interesting take on yoga and me being me, well, I just had to speak with him. Dean probably doesn’t remember talking with me (I’m not very memorable as most know), but we exchanged some thought regarding exercise and what his specific approach of yoga he calls Man Flow Yoga™. To say I was impressed with Dean would be an understatement and I incorporated some of his ideas into my practice. Over the last year or so I haven’t been as consistent with my yoga but still implement certain poses based on their value and I incorporate certain postures as needed for my individual clients. Recently, I have rekindled my enthusiasm for yoga practice and again, Dean came into the picture but this time in a form on an e-book he has recently published entitled Yoga Basics for Men. The description of the book is listed when you click on the link so I won’t cover what’s already there, but I can tell you that this a very thorough, well documented with excellent text and accompanying photos of how to execute specific yoga poses properly and safely. And ladies, don’t let the name fool you, MFY is not just for the guys. Dean invites everyone to take part in his form of yoga practice. He developed his style of yoga with the guys in mind because – according to his website – yoga is still a woman-dominate activity and Dean wanted to take into consideration that guys are generally less flexible than women and he wanted to exhibit how his approach can get the fellas strong, lean, fit and flexible also. You may also want to check out his many free videos on YouTube and get a sense of his Man Flow Yoga approach.
Authors Note: This review of Dean and Man Flow Yoga™ was unsolicited. I just find extreme value in what he is doing and wanted to share with others so they to may possibly benefit from his experience and knowledge. – Namaste, baby!
