Yoga for Men – Dr. Baxter Bell

Since becoming popular in the west, Yoga has been embraced mostly by women, even though for thousand of years women were not allowed to teach yoga or be involved in the philosophical aspects of the discipline. In recent years, more men are coming back to practice, but is Yoga good for men? Is there a reason why they should not practice it? To answer these questions I invited today Baxter Bell, welcome Baxter…

Baxter has been actively deepening his understanding of yoga and relaxation since making the stress-reducing move from a career as a busy family doctor to that of a yoga teacher and medical acupuncturist. He is now involved in the integration of therapeutic applications of yoga with Western medicine, lecturing to health care professionals. He studied with Rodney Yee, Patricia Walden, and Erich Schiffmann, and has been strongly influenced by the work of TKV Desikachar and Donald Moyer. Baxter is also on faculty for several Teacher Training programs and teaches workshops and retreats around the country and internationally, including specific yoga for men classes.
