Yoga class tonight before I head home. While I’m looking forward to it, I’ve always wondered why yoga doesn’t seem to appeal to many men.
In the class I go to I’m the only regular male. Occasionally another guy will turn up, try the class, maybe come for a couple of weeks, and then disappear, never to return.
Someone I used to work beside, started going to a yoga class a few months back, and although he was really keen to start, he actually went online to ask if it would be “weird” if I guy took up yoga. I just don’t understand why (in the main) guys don’t do yoga.
When I first when to the class, it was with the aim of getting more flexible for karate, but now I do it for it’s own sake, and enjoy it. The yoga, plus some meditation, help me when I feel stressed. I’m really bad for bottling things up, and this counteracts that stress really well.
So, does anyone have similar experiences, is the lack of men doing yoga typical ?
