I’ve taken many at-home yoga classes throughout my fitness journey, but never had a class feel better than Dean’s. He gets what’s needed to fully engage the body in a way that makes yoga approachable. It’s the perfect thing to mix up heavy lifting with, and through his teachings, my body alignment AND awareness has greatly improved. Dean is the man and I’m excited to continue my yoga journey with him.

Man Flow Yoga is a simple, safe, & fundamentally sound approach to teaching flexibility of all backgrounds. About 3 years ago, I made a conscious decision to add more flexibility training to our programs here. When I first saw Man Flow Yoga, I was totally blown away. It has been the motivation for putting flexibility training into our own facility.
How Man Flow Yoga, and yoga in general, has helped me being a dad. You get a great workout in- you can make it quick, you can do 15 minutes, you can do 30 minutes, 45, an hour, whatever you want. You can really start to get the sweat going and really start to notice a difference quickly in your body, and how your body looks, and how your clothes start fitting, and things that.
I know the general mainstream exercise that people go and do, you don't really get that as quick as you do with yoga. And not only that, just running around, I'm chasing after almost a three-year-old. Just being able to have that stamina to keep up. And when your three-year-old comes up to you and says, "Hey let's play yoga," you know you can drop into downward-facing dog, or you can do something fun with them and they have a blast.
Soccer Player & Weight lifter
The workouts are incredible! So I'm a 26 years old and have almost always been in great shape - I workout regularly and play soccer often. However, I never had the mobility or flexibility that I wanted, and I knew how important it was. I had quite a bit of lower back pain, knee pain, and just felt stiff a lot of the time. I started with your "quick learner" program for 3-4 weeks, then went into "Bulletproof your knees - 5 day" and did that for about 8 weeks straight, and now onto the mobility challenge.

I’m so glad I found Dean Pohlman’s Man Flow Yoga. I wanted to do more yoga, but I also wanted to focus on mobility. This is the perfect blend of both. His videos are incredibly easy to follow because he masterfully guides you through proper form and technique. I feel like Superman after a 12-minute fixer upper! And when I was struggling with shoulder pain, he pointed me to a video specifically about improving shoulder mobility and eliminating pain.
Retired General & Lifelong Runner
I'm David and a member of Man Flow Yoga. Man Flow Yoga has made the difference to me and it's kept me on the trail to be able to run, which is what I like to do. After many years of injury, physical therapy got me back onto the trail but yoga is what keeps me there and gives me the extra strength, stability, and flexibility to maintain my running. In fact, it actually builds upon the physical therapy and continues that which the therapist helped me to understand of how to improve myself. These routines seem to be the trick, in fact I don't even run unless I do one of Dean's routines before I go.
I've started and completed almost every exercise program out there, but Man Flow Yoga is the first program that I've consistently stayed with. It doesn't get boring because there are so many different workouts and programs to do. I love the way that Dean trains and explains the techniques. I'll be in the middle of something and he'll say, "make sure your knee is straight here," and sure enough, my knee will need to be straighter... You don't have to be flexible (I'm not at all), you just have to try. I felt results almost immediately and feel amazing every morning after my Man Flow Yoga workout!
I’m 38 years old and I’ve been part of the Man Flow Yoga community for about 18 months. A little bit about my past, I grew up playing baseball, basketball, golf, and swimming. I went to college and took up weightlifting. I lifted weights pretty extensively until the age of 30. At 30 I started having more shoulder pains and knee pains, which I always had throughout lifting weights, and i took up endurance sports. Since taking up endurance sports I've done a couple Iron Man triathlons and a couple shorter distance triathlons I really fell in love with it, but what I noticed was I was starting to lose a lot of the strength I acquired through weight training.
I was looking for a program to supplement my endurance training because I still like to play golf, pick up basketball, and maybe a game of sand volleyball of the weekends. I was losing some of the strength that I felt I needed to perform where i wanted to in those sports. I didn't want to go back to traditional weightlifting because of the aches and pains...so i thought I’d try yoga. What Man Flow Yoga has done for the way my body feels, and the way my body performs, was a game changer and is something I will probably continue to do until the day I die.
Dealing with Back Pain
I originally purchased a Man Flow Yoga membership to help with my back pain from degenerative disk disease that I've struggled with for 14 year. For the past 6 weeks i've been practicing Man Flow Yoga and learning how to better activate my core and other supporting muscles. Not only has my back pain dramatically reduced to the point where I don't notice it anymore but I've noticed other benefits as well such as healthier pain free knees, better posture thanks to learning better shoulder and upper back activation. [and] My friends and family even commented that I looked taller!
Busy Foreign Service Offer
I'm a 35 year old foreign affairs professional and I've been using man flow yoga for the last two and a half years man flow yoga has made yoga a lot more accessible to me because I can take it on the go and I can work it in to my other workout routines which include running swimming and weightlifting
I really appreciate man flow yoga and Dean's verbal cues during the workouts which really helped me hone in on what are the muscle groups that I should be focusing on and what are the right body positioning for each hold.MFY has helped increase my flexibility my balance and my core strength and I hope to keep using man flow yoga for many years to come.
Father, Surfer, US Navy Veteran
I am a father of a three-year-old and a one and a half year old little girl. I'm a United States Navy veteran and I do yoga. If you had asked me a year and a half ago there's probably no way on earth that I would have uttered that entire statement. I've tried yoga in the past and every time have walked out at the end, frustrated and in pain.
I know I need to do yoga. I've done things in my life that have made me hurt and so I sought out a program that I could do without yelling at the TV or being overly frustrated that I wasn't getting the amount of instruction that I wanted. Dean's programs have done that for me.
I started doing yoga probably about almost two months ago. I was looking for something that was gonna provide me some strength building, particularly in parts of my body that have been laxed. Those results that I've seen so far, I've seen some major changes in my posture my ability to stay flexible throughout the day.
The type of work that I do is kind of 50/50 between sedentary and doing a lot of walking. A couple of things that have occurred- I've had tendency to over train in the past and have suffered some injuries, and as a result I have I'm having some issues with bursitis and knee pain. One of the things that drew me to MFY was the fact that it allowed me to explore other ways to get a good significant workout and maintain my body weight.
Avid Rock Climber
I used to hate yoga because I could never follow the instruction, they always would use these words that I didn't know what it means, so I didn't know what they're expecting me to do. And also, I would get bored with the yoga video and it didn't feel like it work out to me. Once I came across Man Flow Yoga and tried it for the first time, I was amazed at how time felt like it passed by right quick and I could actually follow the instruction. Dean would get to the point, and it felt like an actual workout. So I did sign up for the annual membership and even after a few weeks of yoga, I could tell that I'm way more flexible.
I used to do bodybuilding before and then I started rock climbing 2 years ago, and I've never been good with stretching and with yoga. So flexibility hasn't been really my strong point, and after doing only a few weeks or a month of yoga, I noticed the effects of yoga in my climbing. I could climb better because I was more flexible. I had better technique, and I could notice that I have better posture. I was more aware of my body and my core, especially when I'm standing.
