If you're a guy who feels less macho with the idea of attending yoga classes, take heed. L!fe, a broga studio located in Bonifacio Global City, opened recently.

What exactly is Broga? The word is a portmanteau of "bros" and "yoga" which seeks to inspire men who have thought of doing yoga but hesitate because they feel conscious about the presence of women.

"Some men feel awkward going to yoga class because it's full of girls. So L!fe created broga, a yoga class that is geared for guys," the studio's public relations officer Rey Rubio told us.

He added that broga emphasizes the more masculine features of yoga such as "core-strengthening and muscle toning." Along with that, it offers these other benefits:


1)   IT'S A GOOD WAY TO RELEASE STRESS

The meditative nature of yoga works to relieve tension and reduce stress. It can also make you more resilient.

2)   IT'S A FULL BODY WORKOUT

Carrying dumbbells isn't the only way to sculpt your muscles. Yoga also provides great strength training. You use your body weight to move from one posture to another, and in the most challenging poses, you're essentially lifting every pound of it.


3)   YOU'LL SLEEP BETTER

Aside from its challenging poses and stretches, broga also features light meditation and breathing exercises that can help relax the muscles and calm the mind. This relaxing post-workout routine can help you get a good night sleep.

4)   IT'LL ENHANCE FLEXIBILITY

Yoga helps to flush out lactic acid that builds up in your muscles and causes stiffness. The improved flexibility you receive is something you can use for just about every sport. Or, you know, the sack.


5)   WANT STEAMIER SEX?

As mentioned earlier, it helps reduce anxiety and increase flexibility. These translate to a boon in bed. The lower anxiety levels boost your libido levels while the added flexibility makes it easier to accomplish certain sex positions.
