for the Carlow Hurling Club Monday Night Classes! €10 drop-in, donations to Movember Foundation & Irish Cancer Society
What is Movember?
The Movember Foundation is a multinational charity that aims to raise awareness of and money for men's health. It was founded in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia. The annual November-long event is to grow a moustache to raise awareness of men's health, particularly prostate and testicular cancer, as well as mental health. "Move for Movember" promotes physical and mental health.
Yoga is an ancient practice that promotes mental and physical well being through deep and regular breathing. Dubbed "intelligent exercise", it is a full package of physical movement that cultivates flexibility, strength and balance, settles the nervous system, and promotes mental focus.
Why should Men do Yoga?
Every man has his reason. Younger athletes may find it promotes needed flexibility to guard against sports injury or to complement treatmenets to overcome injury. Men beyond competitive sports may find that yoga provides a fantastic physical challenge without the goal-keeping and competitive motivations. Men who never liked sports in the first place may find a practice where they can move at their own pace and find mental equilibrium at the same time. Some might find it gives them headspace to just be themselves.
