Men’s Sexual Wellness | Dean Pohlman #634

Come join the conversations in the SMRNation Community at my.passionatelymarried.net

On the Regular Version …

Today I welcome guest Dean Pohlman, the founder of Man Flow Yoga. Dean shares his unique journey into the world of yoga, which started accidentally with a fitness-focused class that turned out to be more challenging and beneficial than he expected.

We discuss how yoga is often overlooked by men who prefer intense workouts for building muscle, but Dean emphasizes that yoga’s slow, controlled movements, body awareness, and breathing also lead to functional strength and improved mobility. He highlights that yoga not only helps address weaknesses and build muscle differently from traditional weight training but also makes the body more efficient and less prone to joint strain during other workouts.

Dean touches on the importance of body-mind awareness in relationships, and how yoga helps us prevent overreactions and arguments with our partners. By developing awareness through yoga practice, one can make better decisions in tense situations and avoid escalating conflicts.

Corey Allan: Well, my journey with working out, eating right, getting better, being flexible now that I'm 52 years old, this is becoming more and more important, which is the importance of this guest today. So Dean, Man Flow Yoga is something I found just recently and cannot recommend it enough. So it's a privilege to have Dean joining today and welcome to the show, man.

Dean: Yeah, Corey, thanks a lot for having me. I'm a big fan of your mission here, and I'm happy to lend what motivation and information I can to everybody listening.

Corey Allan: Yeah, because what we've tried to do all the time when we're talking about just passionate marriages, passionate lives, and living as such, obviously our well-being comes into play, our health comes into play, our physical nature and our body comes into play. And you have a unique story in some

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: ways, at least from what I have found when I've examined the yoga space, done the yoga with some of the other aspects and resources and programs that are out there. And so I'd love just as we get started, give a quick, how did you wind up here

Dean: Mm

Corey Allan: in this space?

Dean: hmm. Yeah, so I think I'm like a lot of guys in the sense that normally I would not have done a yoga class. I did my first yoga class on accident. I was looking for the tailor I was walking around the shopping center. And I went through the yoga studio I thought maybe this is how I get in there. And I was all just to work out I was going to go to lifetime fitness after that. And I asked them you know I'm a lacrosse I play college. play college lacrosse. You know, I'm really strong. But like, you know, I don't know what my flexibility is like, will this help me? And they, you know, they said, Yeah, it's gonna help you. You know, you're gonna work on your flexibility, your core strength, you're gonna work on your injuries. And I looked around and I was like, Oh, I get to take my shirt off too. Cool. You know, I'm a 20 21 year old, you know, jacked

Corey Allan: Hehehe

Dean: college kids. So I was like, Yeah, this is great. Got halfway through the class was nearly dying. was easily the most challenging workout I've ever done. And you know, I'm, you know, I college athlete, you know, I'm doing conditioning

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: sessions, I'm doing weightlifting, I'm doing all types of stuff. And it was so challenging that it inspired me to keep going back because I realized, okay, if this is hard, that means that there's a lot of weaknesses that this workout is pointing out for me. And I kept going back, you know, I noticed on the field, I felt a lot lighter on my feet, I felt more in control of my body. In the weight room, I felt more aware of my body. I felt stronger. My recovery was better. My joints didn't hurt as much. And I just thought, wow, this is a great workout. And I wonder why more guys aren't doing this. And

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: I tried to invite some of my teammates to a yoga studio with me. They didn't wanna go. So I started teaching it to them directly. I was the conditioning coach. So I just had my team going through, you know, yoga poses in the, you know, in the natatorium, in the rec center. And eventually I created a YouTube channel, started recording myself doing workouts in my, you know, my college apartment. And, uh, eventually it grew to what it is today, which is

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: a fitness focused form of yoga for men. And, um, you know, it's kind of a, you know, that's how it started. Never intended for it to be what it is, but this is what it is now. And, you know, I'm loving what I get to do.

Corey Allan: Yeah, lots of things seem to happen that way, Dean. I mean, in some regards, the podcast people listen to here is the same way. It's like, all right, we need to get this information out there or not try this. And here we are

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: almost 12 years later and it's still rolling along. So

Dean: Yeah, congrats.

Corey Allan: this is one of those things too, that on a personal side, you know, when I was 49, is when I made the huge, okay, I gotta get serious. I always worked out, I always played basketball. I was aware of health, but I did that more. Maybe this is, I don't know if this is relatable to you. I know it'll be relatable to some of the audience out there though. I did the whole, I work out so I can still be lazy in what I choose to eat, right? And how I care for myself, I still do, but I do it because I still wanna just, fast food is great, sodas are great, just all that kind of stuff.

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: Well, at some point in the 40s, that started not working

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: as well. Right. It's like,

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: I still am in fairly decent shape, but I got to get serious about this. And so Pam and I went on a serious during COVID. Let's get right. And

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: let's clean ourselves out. Let's, let's

Dean: We had

Corey Allan: eat

Dean: nothing

Corey Allan: better.

Dean: else to do, so.

Corey Allan: Exactly. Well, and I've also got, I also had the selfish motivation of, I got a lot of years of life left and sex possibly with this woman. I want to make sure I'm in. as best shape as I can be to enjoy that at

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: this stage in my life, which is then where yoga comes in. Because that's when I actually seriously like I got to explore this too, because the flexibility, the mobility, the joints, all the stuff you just mentioned and how important that is for our lives. And I think that's the overlooked thing with men a lot of times is like, no, it's the bulk. It's the size. It's the look. It's

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: not the actual movement.

Dean: Mm hmm. Yeah,

Corey Allan: And I'm

Dean: I think.

Corey Allan: curious, what is it that makes that such a hard sell?

Dean: Yeah, I mean, I think men just want to, a lot of men, I won't say all men, but I think a lot of men just want to feel the intensity of a workout, right? They wanna be sweating, they wanna feel their muscles pumping, they wanna feel the burn, and they wanna do exercises that will give them the results that they want. They want to build

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: muscle, right? So they just think, okay, well, I just need to keep building muscle, I need to keep doing strength training. And the reality of that is, you know, we're not teenagers anymore, so. Our flexibility isn't what it used to be. We also spend all day, most of us spend all day sitting, right, so, and

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: what you do when you're sitting, your hips are getting tight, your core is weak, your back is overstretched, your shoulders are rounded forward, you have no upper back strength. So there's a lot of things that you have to address in order to be able to do those other workouts that are gonna help you build muscle. But on top of that, doing these types of exercises, working on isometric strength, working on flexibility, working on balance, you're actually building functional strength and mobility that's going to translate into your other workouts. So not only are you addressing a lot of weaknesses and building muscle in ways that you're not going to in weight training, but you're also making your body more efficient and more effective at weight training. So you'll build more muscle, but you're also going to have less strain on your joints because you're

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: using better technique. You're using a lot of those smaller muscles that you tend to neglect. when you're doing big lifts like squat, deadlift, bench press. And you know, the result is that you're just going to feel a lot better in the gym. You're going to feel a lot better in life and you're going to perform a lot better in those, those exercises as well. So.

Corey Allan: Yeah, and then right before we started recording, we were talking about the combination and the importance of mind, body, emotion, connecting.

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: Right. And because I think that's

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: also where this translates into something larger

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: than just my physical appearance and my ability to have, you know, move things. You know,

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: because that's what I hear. I hear a lot of times guys, you know, they'll make the comment up. I'm going to head to the gym and go move heavy objects. You know,

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: like it's

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: a badge of honor, which in some regards, absolutely, that's a cool thing because you're using your body. But there's a whole lot more going on. And

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: I think that's where this also translates relationally. Right.

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: Because there's this element of I'm the common denominator in all that goes on in my life. So

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: how am I setting myself in the optimum position for all the things that happen in my life, which. One of them is the importance of my relationships.

Dean: Yeah, absolutely. So there's something special about yoga when we compare it to other types of exercises. And it's the really the slow controlled movement, the emphasis on body awareness and the emphasis on breathing. And this is a it's a great workout on its own. But what it also does is it allows you to slow down and focus on your body, which allows you to be more aware of your thoughts, it allows you to be more aware of the relationship between your body and your thoughts and your emotions. And so it just helps you slow down and be more aware and practice your response to

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: things that come up during the day. So, you know, I have I talked with a ton of our members. And one thing they comment on is, you know, they first talk about like, wow, yeah, my joints feel better. I'm stronger, you know, I feel better. I've lost weight. But then they go into, you know, the other benefits are like, but I also didn't realize that I was going to be sleeping better, I was going to have less stress, I was going to be more patient, I would be more aware of my stress during the day, I have less stress, more patience, better focus. And

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: so these are the things that happen when you practice body awareness, breathing, and exercise simultaneously, you know, and something you know, I listened to an episode of yours recently on overreaction, overreaction

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: to your partner's overreaction. And the only way that you can stop the that process of that or, you know, I'm sure you've been in arguments with your partner before, and you know where it's leading, right? You're like,

Corey Allan: Oh

Dean: you

Corey Allan: yeah.

Dean: say one thing, and then she says something else, and it escalates. And then you say something back. And you know the pattern, you know that

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: it never ends in Oh, honey, I love you so much. Let's let's have sex and let's have a wonderful evening. It always ends in okay, she's gonna go over there for three hours, I'm gonna go over here. And now I have to feel bad until she's ready to forgive, you know, she's ready

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: to let me apologize to her. And so if you don't have that awareness, you can't stop that from happening. And something that's just awesome about you know, what you're doing with yoga is you're practicing the ability to be aware of those situations so you can make the right decision or you can stop what you're doing.

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: And as you say, go get a glass of water if you need to, you know, or

Corey Allan: Yeah.

Dean: whatever, whatever you need to do to make a smarter decision in those in those situations.

Corey Allan: Right, because that's one of the foundational things I've come across when it comes to just doing this practice is just that element of presence, that element of centerness, you know, of I want to just be where I am.

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: And it's so difficult to do when emotions get heated and raised or stress gets high or,

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: you know, we did a whole lot of traveling through the month of June, which put us in airports quite a bit. And You talk about a high anxiety situation that it's so, to me, this is maybe the dark side of me. I really love watching people in the airports because you just see the edginess, the reactions, the jumpiness, the, you know, and it's like, I get it, I totally get

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: it. But there's an element of that for sure happens in marriage, that for sure happens in parenting because

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: we get in these situations where We just get, for lack of a better phrase, triggered, instigated,

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: reactive, just because there's so much happening and it's so close to us and how it feels so personal, which it should be. But

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: the benefit of what you're describing is how when I can get into that habit, it translates into other real world things quickly.

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: And if even if I do badly at it. it's still I can recover better. I can reorient better. I can recenter better

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: and then take the steps necessary, right?

Dean: Yeah, I mean, and on top of that, I think, you know, I didn't you mentioned this, but the stress aspect of it is, in addition to helping you practice better awareness, it's also stress relieving. Again, there's just something about it forces you to be present, right? When,

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: when you're doing in class, and like you've done some of my, you know, you've

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: done some manful yoga workouts,

Corey Allan: Love them. Yep.

Dean: and

Corey Allan: Love

Dean: you know,

Corey Allan: them.

Dean: and I appreciate that so much. Thank you. And but when you're doing a workout, and I'm telling you, hey, Where's your knee? Like pay attention to your knee. Let's look at your shoulders. You can't focus on other things. You're being present. You know, you're being very present. You're being very aware of your body. And that helps with stress relief. The more that you can be present, the more, the less stress you're going to have. And that translates into other areas of your life. And sleeping better. You know, how often do you realize that you've just had a, you know, a really stressful day? Cause you slept poorly. So,

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: you know. training, improving your stress levels is going to help with better sleep, it's going to reduce your stress levels more. So, you know, it's just this awesome cycle of, you know, it's a good snowball effect.

Corey Allan: Yeah, and then I think we can also flip that because what we're talking about in some regards, there's a, for the lack of a better phrase, meditative component to this, that

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: it helps alleviate some of the negative things that can be out there in living today. Anxiety,

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: stress, overreactive emotions, all those things tend to lean themselves more towards the negative. But

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: looking at it from the positive side of things. Just the mere fact of learning to be more present with the good things in life,

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: i.e. sex, i.e. good intimate moments, i.e.

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: good pleasurable experiences with people, all of that has tremendous rewards too because it's not just like all of a sudden I've become more aware of navigating the negative. It's like now I'm also

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: enjoying the positive a whole lot more too.

Dean: Mm-hmm. Yeah, absolutely. I don't even know what to say on top of that. I totally agree. What can I add?

Corey Allan: I think it's just worth noting because that's where I've found the benefit. This is one of those things that I had a professor in one of my grad school classes that it was my first group dynamics course. So the very first night was the introduction and then the next night he said, we're going to show up and we're actually going to do a group. I'm gonna run a group and let you guys just get a feel for what it is. So when you came in, there was an inner circle of chairs and then an outer circle. So he's like, anybody that wants to be a part of this process group, which means you're gonna have to be a little more vulnerable, a little more engaged, sit in the inner circle. If you don't want to, that's fine. Sit on the outer and just watch. If

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: you're one on the outer, you're not able to speak. You're not able to interject. You need to sit quietly and just observe, right? Because

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: you don't want to interrupt what's going on. And so it all happened and I chose the outer. And so I'm sitting there and just kind of watch in and like, okay, this dude's pretty good because he's, he's attuned to what's going

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: on because he's professional at this, but there's also a presence that he's got

Dean: Hmm.

Corey Allan: too. That's not just training of, of the profession.

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: And what blew me away, and this is one of the things that I've aspired towards in some regards, which yoga fits in line with, uh, on helping me get there is there's a conversation going on one side of the circle. It's two ladies that are talking about a topic and as soon as that kind of winds down He turns to the outer circle on the other side and said I got the sense something hit over here For

Dean: Hmm.

Corey Allan: people that weren't even involved in the group

Dean: Mm.

Corey Allan: and there was a lady that totally got Reacted to the concept of what was being talked about it hit her personally and he felt it

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: Right and it's like how do you do that? Right?

Dean: Right.

Corey Allan: How do you really connect with another person to that level where you pick it up?

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: And tell me if I'm wrong, I think the main foundation of that is exactly what it is the work you do helps create the floor for, if you will, or a foundation for is

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: it's my awareness with myself first to then be aware and in tune with my surroundings.

Dean: Yeah, I think that anything that's going to help with practicing being present with being aware of yourself, right, because everything the internal becomes the external. So

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: whenever you're focusing on yourself, whenever you have better focus on yourself, that allows you to have, you know, better focus on your surroundings. So, you know, I think a lot of what they're, you know, what your professor had was definitely something that he had practiced and cultivated

Corey Allan: Oh yeah.

Dean: and something that he, you know, genetics may have played a 50% role there as well.

Corey Allan: Maybe.

Dean: But there's definitely something to be said about practicing awareness and practicing being present, being aware of your own body so that, you know, you can be aware of your surroundings. And I think that something else that's important to mention too is, you know, just when you feel less stressed, when you have better posture, people notice that. You know, people, people will kind of, people will gravitate toward that more.

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: Um, you know, and there's, there's actually your body produces different hormones just based on your overall posture, which I think is really cool. Like if you're, if you're standing up with great posture with your, you know, your chest open with your, your thoracic spine extended. So, you know, I've got kind of a, not

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: a puffed out chest, but like, you know, a nice upright posture that projects confidence. Um, you know, that projects. comfort in a lot

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: of ways trust. So I think that, you know, the presence factor, I think also the posture factor is something that's important there.

Corey Allan: Yeah, and that's where we get into this, the beauty of the feedback loop being positive, that if I'm projecting confidence and other people are reflecting that back to me, I can then enhance my own feeling of confidence, right?

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: Because it happens

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: in reverse and it can happen in the positive, in the sense

Dean: Absolutely.

Corey Allan: of I can create this by just being much more aware. And

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: so I'm curious before we wind up this segment.

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: What would be some of the things that would be the best motivator for people to at least just try this out? Because there

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: might be some people absolutely, they do this, they've tried it. We do the Passionately Married Getaway, which we've done for a couple years now. What we've done for several of those is every morning we offer a yoga class for those that want to show up. I've got a real good friend that

Dean: Oh, that's cool.

Corey Allan: she does yoga. We have several that will show up. And some are there very first time to ever try it. But a majority of them are like, oh, absolutely, I would love this. And a majority of them also are the females that

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: come. And so I'm just curious with what it is you do and the transition you've had, what is it that is the best encouragement, if you will, to get people to see the importance and the power, one that yoga provides, but more importantly, the power of everything we've been talking about, of being

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: more holistic. in our approach to our health and our wellbeing.

Dean: Yeah. Well, first off, you know, because I know that you have a large religious following, I would say that yoga is not religious. So I think a big thing that turns a lot of people off is they think that by practicing yoga, they're

Corey Allan: Good

Dean: going

Corey Allan: point.

Dean: against their religion. So that's the first

Corey Allan: Right.

Dean: thing I would say, you know, and I can't speak for I'm not the ambassador for the entire yoga world. So I'm not going to speak for the entire yoga world. But

Corey Allan: Sure.

Dean: I can tell you that 99% of yoga classes that you're going to go into are mostly going to be a stretching class with some focus on some life coaching. They're not going to be saying, OK, now we want you to this next pose is dedicated to Shiva, or something

Corey Allan: Right.

Dean: like. I've been in one class where it was like that and it was a super advanced class and after that we just we stepped into a low lunge. He's like, okay, and now do a lunge. I'm like, well, that was weird. Okay,

Corey Allan: Yeah.

Dean: but you know, and then moving on. So that's the first thing that I that I would say. The second thing is, is pain relief. You know, most guys, I've so many of the guys that I talk with, they just accepted that back pain is just like, you know,

Corey Allan: Yeah.

Dean: it's just a given like, Oh, I'm 40. So I have back pain, or yeah, I exercise and my knees hurt now or, you know, I'm 52 now and I and then and I just have decided that weightlifting is not for me because I'm 52. And that's not true. If you do the right exercises, if you

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: build the appropriate level of strength of muscle control of mobility, you're going to be able to do most exercises that you were doing when you were younger. Are you going to go out and play lacrosse at the collegiate level? Maybe not. But as far as weightlifting, as far as running goes, you know, swimming, endurance training, like, you know, triathlete type stuff, you can absolutely do that. And you can do it in a lot less time than you think. A lot of people I've found, you know, if you can do manful yoga for two or three months, you can get back to what you were doing that you might have never thought you'd be able to ever do again. I've even had some people who, you know, they've done one session and then they go out and I haven't been able to run in years, but I did this workout and it primed my body in a way that I went out and ran two miles without any pain. So pain relief is the big, whether you're,

Corey Allan: That's

Dean: you know,

Corey Allan: huge.

Dean: you're, it is, I mean, and,

Corey Allan: Yeah,

Dean: and

Corey Allan: that's

Dean: you also

Corey Allan: huge.

Dean: don't realize how much, you also don't realize how much pain takes up your energy.

Corey Allan: Uh huh.

Dean: Like, like if you have, you know, I had I was going through some low back pain. I got I got COVID and then I moved. So I lost a bunch of muscle, but kept trying to work out and I ended up having some pretty significant low back pain. And I was just tired for like

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: months, because pain, it takes just a lot of energy. So, you know, whether you are training for something, whether you just enjoy working out, you want to keep doing it, or if you just want to experience your life. pain free. There's a reason there to do, you know, I can say manful yoga, or yoga in

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: general, I will say that, you know, manful yoga is unique, you know, we try to make the workouts more specifically created for men, there's more emphasis

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: on strength and active mobility, as opposed to passive stretching. So there is a difference, I can't speak for all yoga, but I think pain relief is a huge thing. And the third You don't have to start big to be successful, just

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: a few minutes per day, three times per week is going to have a tremendous impact. And something that's cool about yoga is you really don't need a lot of motivation or equipment to do it. You can just do it in your living room, you can set it up on the TV, follow along, do your best. You know, it's not like you have to psych yourself up to do this workout.

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: You know, most every workout that I do. Um, at least my beginner workouts, beginner focus workouts, which are the majority of my workouts, they're going to build you up. You're going to have a proper warmup. So you just turn it on and you just do the best you can. Um,

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: you know, it doesn't take a ton of motivation to be able to do it. You just need a yoga mat, a couple of blocks of strap. If you don't have that, you just get a towel from the hotel room, take the waist backs, get, flip it upside down. Now you've got a block, grab a towel. That's your strap. So. There's just not that much required and there's not much motivation required to do it. So

Corey Allan: Yeah the blocks I used were the 10 pound dumbbells on their end and that worked just fine too.

Dean: And that works. Yeah, so those would be my big tips. And

Corey Allan: Perfect.

Dean: it doesn't take long to notice the effects. That's what's

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: really cool. You know, a lot of

Corey Allan: Right.

Dean: workouts, you gotta do like two or three months. And then you're like, okay, now my back doesn't hurt. But you do one of these workouts, you move around, you're like, wow, my body feels a lot better.

Corey Allan: Yeah, that's the one thing I have found with the power of doing this kind of an approach is it's much more designed for our human body,

Dean: Mm.

Corey Allan: right? It's not just, you know, cause I remember growing up and the first time I ever saw like the true genuine bodybuilders. It's like, that doesn't look natural. That doesn't look, that's not what was intended. That's enhanced, that's modified. You know,

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: it's like, okay, I don't, I would maybe want to walk around with you in a dark alley, but I don't want to go hiking or rock climbing with you or anything like

Dean: Yeah,

Corey Allan: that because

Dean: that'd

Corey Allan: you're

Dean: be

Corey Allan: not

Dean: tough.

Corey Allan: designed for that. That's not what that workout is intended for. But this seems to be, I want something that translates into how do I live my life well? How

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: do I put myself in a position to live well, to be active, to be able to travel, to be able to be mobile, to have

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Corey Allan: sex, to be... you know, flexible and do things with grandkids, with kids, you know, at whatever it might be, whatever stage you're in. So that's the beauty of this thing to me, Dean. So how can people find Man Flow Yoga? We've alluded to it several times and I highly recommend it, but tell people where

Dean: Yeah.

Corey Allan: they find

Dean: So I'm on, I'm on YouTube. I'm on a, we've got an app, Manful Yoga. I'm on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok. Everything is at Manful Yoga. Also, I would be remiss to mention that this actually has profound impact on your overall sexual wellbeing too. So I just made a comment in our Facebook group a few days ago and asked like, hey, you know, we talk about the sexual benefits of this, but who's experienced them? And we've got a lot of guys who were on medication before. They couldn't sustain an erection. And now they're able to have an erection, to have sex, to completion

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: without medication. We've got guys who said like, yeah, my erections are definitely stronger. My orgasms are more

Corey Allan: Mm-hmm.

Dean: enjoyable. So we have a free sexual wellness challenge that you can sign up for, no credit card required, at manfullyoga.com slash sexual-wellness.

Corey Allan: Perfect. Well, man, thank you so much. And this has been an enjoyable conversation thus far, and I look forward to continue it in the extended. All right.

Dean: Yeah, I really appreciate it. Thanks for having me on Dr. Allen.
