Yoga for Men


I love Ari's class! The movement flows so naturally. You will do a powerful pose but then a gentle pose will follow right after so you don't overdo it. I really noticed the small details in the movement sequence designed by Ari. He is really respectful and warm as a teacher, too so you don't feel intimidated even with the hard poses.
