Yoga for Men

The topic of yoga and men is one that is not often associated with each other, in today’s female dominated industry. Yet, some of the best teachers today are men and historically, many of the leading yogis who developed the practice of yoga and its many traditions have been male too.
In this week’s post, I discuss this notion and take a fresh perspective on why all men with busy working lives should introduce yoga into their lives.
Thanks to Yoga Scotland for the opportunity to publish an article in their January edition and to Lindsey Porter from Yoga~n~u for the introduction!

    Great post YB – the crux of it being that Yoga was not designed for the female form! This is ironic because in full view of the fact that it has become a predominantly muddled class female pursuit. Yoga was originally practiced by men who possessed little: don’t forget to come to my class where it’s 80:20 men:women

    It’s nice to see a fresh take on this. There’s so much more reason for men to do yoga besides increasing their deadlifts and the media isn’t doing a good job of showing it.

      Thanks Dan. I agree that too much focus is on the physical and elemental mental level. It’s a much more deeper practice which men can benefit from. Thanks for stopping by.
