|My beginner downward dog, a work in process.|
We have been practicing yoga a couple times a week since the festival and my flexibility has already improved! This is something that I, and men in general, often have difficulty with. My shoulder mobility has increased which has greatly improved my overhead squat. Plus I can finally touch my toes! That hasn't happened since high school!

For guys, doing downward dog is a great way to increase shoulder flexibility and lengthen the hamstring. The shoulder mobility will increase your ability to lift heavy overhead. Increased hamstring length will allow you to go deeper into your squat.
