Why Should Men Practise Yoga?

Strike a pose.

No, I can’t stand on my head but I can cross my legs and I do enjoy sitting and breathing deeply and slowly.  Yoga sounds like a good idea but is definitely out of the question; it just for the ladies, right?  Most yoga classes are attended by fit, flexible females in tight leotards which is all and good but I want to work up a sweat and grunt my way through my exercises. I need a lot more convincing!

The great thing about yoga is you don’t need any special equipment—just space and a mat.

Where do I begin and what will I need?

  • A mat (don’t rely on the studio mat)
  • Shorts that don’t ride up too high
  • A shirt that doesn’t move too much
  • An open mind
  • Willingness to be humbled and ask questions
  • A good teacher
