A yoga book for the chronically inflexible, with practical, down-to-earth advice for weekend warriors, aging athletes, and anyone else who could benefit from a bit more flexibility in their lives.

The benefits of yoga—greater strength, flexibility, and presence of mind—are for anyone, no matter their skill level. But most classes don’t feel that way if you’re a first-timer—or an inflexible male. Enter Yoga for the Inflexible Male, a welcoming and humorous guide for people of all stripes that gives three vetted hour-long yoga routines, each with roughly a dozen yoga poses. The poses are illustrated and described in depth, and each one contains variations so that they are accessible to anyone, no matter their flexibility. The back of the book also has sequences geared for practitioners of specific sports, like running, biking, climbing, and so on. As more and more men are encouraged to increase their flexibility, the health advantages of yoga are no longer beyond their reach.

Publication History: Trade Paperback Original

TRADE PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

TRENDING TOPIC: Yoga continues to rise in popularity throughout the United States, especially for aging baby boomers, with roughly 30 million practitioners.

VETTED SEQUENCES: While the book is humorous and light, the poses are rooted in best practices and offer real results.

FOR EVERYONE: The poses are accessible to anyone, no matter their skill level.

CLEAR INSTRUCTION: The instructions are precise and understandable, and each pose and variation is illustrated.

HUMOROUS POINT OF VIEW: Yoga can be self-serious but this book tackles it with lightness and humor.

APPEALING PACKAGE: Many yoga books are for the already fit or have a very new-age feel; this book will look like something for a mass audience.

YOGA MATT is the nom de namaste of Roy Parvin and a nod to the everyman of yoga. Parvin is the award-winning fiction author of In the Snow Forest (WW Norton), and a recipient of a National Endowments for the Arts Grant in Literature. Roy is also an elite cyclist; his devotion to yoga began as therapy for a bout of sleeplessness. The yoga proved to be so therapeutic for his insomnia that he became an evangelist of the ancient practice.
