Yoga

Do any guys here do yoga? I know a ton of girls who do it, but very few guys. I was invited to attend a free beginner session and I'm just curious to get some opinions, especially from guys.

the yoga class next to my kickboxing class gets out while we are still in. There is usually about 1/3-1/2 guys that walk out of there.

Ive been told its really good to help your breathing and to relax if you are a person who has trouble dealing with stress.

I don't really have problems with stress, the main thing I'd be interested in is increasing flexibility. I'm pretty rigid, especially my back. Probably comes from being in an office chair all day.

Ive done it on and off for years.

You should definitely give it a shot since its free. It takes a whole different kind of strength. Ive seen it crush some hard-core gym rats.

Most guys face similar obstacles to fitness. If you're not stressing out, you're scraping up time to work out--and sometimes your goals are murky.

Yoga isn't a cure-all. But we heartily prescribe accompanying your workout with the ancient practice. The benefits of yoga are obvious.

Yes, yoga links the mind and body, a concept that sounds a little bogus until you actually do it. But just as important, yoga boosts energy and speeds up your body's recovery. It can even help with back pain.

And you can do it without the trappings you may associate with yoga. Leave your Sanskrit dictionary at home and wear whatever you want.

If hitting the mat still seems frilly, consider the nearly 3.5 million men who are probably sleeping better than you because they've mastered their breathing. Or the NFL players who swear by it.

"The thing with yoga is that it's counterintuitive to a guy's natural way," says Jessie Brazil, a yoga instructor and certified health and fitness associate for the Health Fitness Corporation. "A guy sees it as stretching. He doesn't see it as a workout."

Results take time. Yoga is about total body strength--and seamlessly merging it with your other passions: Sex, travel, you name it.

Tried Hot yoga a couple of times. If it wasnt 100 bucks a month I'd do it instead of my gym routine.

    • I don't even know what the hell ARSEN is rambling on about at this point. First he's trying to have a pissing match about all pro like that makes it okay he posts ignorant poo, and then he's claiming I've asked he be banned, lol I haven't btw. If holding you accountable for your horrendously ignorant remarks hurts your feelings that bad, you better be glad this is just the huddle and not a social media outlet your employer might read. Post this poo about women being raped or black grandmothers being pussies for being afraid of racists threatening them somewhere else and you might be looking for another job. In the real world, your ignorant opinions will harm you sooner or later, and no amount of language barrier excuses will save you.
