If you told me 2 years ago that my main form of fitness would be yoga I probably would have laughed and said I am not the flexible type and never will be. Blood, Sweat, and chalk were my workout essentials.
Ive always been the type of person who thinks the harder it is the better, The more risk the more reward. Most things I did were centered around adrenaline and pushing my body to its limits. I raced dirt bikes, rode BMX, and competed in the sport of Kettlebell Lifting and achieving the Rank Master of sport. Then came my first serious injury to my right shoulder. I had a slight tear in my rotator cuff and wouldn’t be lifting kettle bells anytime soon without pain. I got surgery and have since mostly recovered but have some limitations over head.
This led me down the path of trying to train hard but also smart at the same time, which worked for some time until I had a running injury to my right knee and as Dean says in one of his videos ” you can mess with the gods, but don’t mess with your knees” Im not positive thats how it went but its close. I had messed mine up pretty good, MRI showed nothing but I could barley walk. After a layoff I heard Dean on a podcast and the rest is history. I was hooked after the first workout.
I never thought yoga could be such a great workout and I was finishing feeling better than before the workout which wasn’t something I was use to.
Since then its been around a year and a half and I have made Man Flow Yoga a consistent part of my weekly regime, and I feel better than I have in a long time. I am truly grateful to have found this community and intend to learn and share as much as I can along my journey so people can see the benefits of Yoga as well.
