Yoga is very often overlooked by athletes. More specifically male athletes because Yoga can seem very gay upon first glance.

There are different types of Yoga and some are more intensive than others.

I used to do it a couple times per week.

From what I noticed

-Improved Flexibility & Dexterity
-Improved Balance
-Improved Core Strength
-Relaxation
-Relief of Stress (both physical and mental)

It can be very beneficial

Funny, I was thinking about making a thread just like this. I really reccomend yoga, its really effective. My entire body is stretched, all my joints are kept in good condition. My breathing gets deep and into a zone. I'm getting older, not younger so yoga has been really helpful. What I notice maybe the most is how I'm able to really open up and stretch my hips, which helps a lot. Balance poses have also been really helpful, they've helped me learn how to slot my weight properly when throwing punches.

Would anyone recommend a certain type of yoga for a younger person (I'm 14) that could benefit me greatly ? If possible tell me where I could get it (I live in Australia)\

Thank you

Just start with basic poses, google these:

sun salutation, downward dog, forward bend, warrior pose, triangle pose, child pose, corpse pose.

Because you are young, you have better flexibilty, but your tendons and such are still growing - so don't push your limbs too hard or you could mess yourself up.

If you get a chance, take a class. Look around your community there might be a class. Keep in mind it'll probably be 90% women, at the very least, which isn't exactly a bad thing.

I've taken 2 yoga classes in my life, both times I was the only guy. For some reason, most males have a problem with that - as if stretching, relaxing and breathing deeply around a bunch of women is a bad thing [take a class @ a college if possible, think: college girls+yoga=a good thing]. If you have hangups about yourself, I guess this will be a problem. This is a problem I fail to understand, which is weird because I'm not exactly the most confident person. I think this is a big part of the reason Yoga is thought of as a women thing or somethin here in the West. Its stupid, and annoying - if I ever pick up a Yoga book, magazine or website, its always these lame dumb looking white women, right now Yoga is exclusively marketed toward suburban female idiots. Personally, boxing is not possible for me without doing yoga. I know I'd have messed up my joints tendons and muscles a lot more without doing this stuff.

Although a class is great (just like learning boxing from an actual trainer) you can learn on your own:

I was actually planning on giving yoga a go to help with relaxing my injured neck muscles after I got head****ed at wrestling practice.. I hadn't considered that it would also have benefits to my boxing

EDIT: wtf man it blanks out s-p-i-k even when its part of the word s-p-i-ke :s

Would be cool if you lived in Hong Kong or China, I was watching Globe Trekker the other day and they had free yoga classes in the city parks in Hong Kong in the mornings. Would be a good way to start the day I bet.
