Men and Yoga

The other day I went to a Yoga class, the first since 3 years and even it was a class for beginners and I am not, I enjoyed it very much. What I realised was that there were all women in the class.

Why is it that there aren’t as many men as women in the class?

Does anyone think that Yoga is a womens thing? Why? Because of the ‘Om Shanti’ singing in some classes? Is it because women are supposedly more flexible than men? Or because everyone think that when you are not flexible (like the others in the Yoga class) you do a fool of yourself and women don’t mind making a fool of themselves as much as men do?

Yoga was actually developed for men. For warriors, especially Hatha Yoga which deals mostly with body and breathing exercises that help the student to become aware of his or her internal states. Hatha yoga exercises help to make the body a healthy and strong resource for the student.

Yes, Yoga is good for everyone men and women especially Yoga offering so many different kinds. Everyone can find the one that suits him/her the best which is very important. It is important to know what you want and what feels good for your body. Always listen to your body. Everyone should try Yoga men, women, old, young kids and adolescents. The benefits of Yoga shouldn’t be ignored.

If everyone in this world would do Yoga, would it be a better place?

No, I don’t think so but we would be happier and healthier.

So what are you waiting for?

What is Yoga?

Yoga is a commonly known generic term for the physical, mental and spiritual practices which originated in ancient India. Yoga means so much more than just Yoga Poses Breathing and Meditation.

I’ve been practicing Yoga (Bikram Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga and Power Yoga) for about 10 years now and it will be in one way or the other always be a part of me/my life.

Why do I love Yoga?

Because it is so multifaceted it can be relaxing, refreshing, exhausting, strengthtening, focusing and can be practised everywhere. You choose what your body or mind needs. It changed my life in some way and helped me through tough times. It taught me awareness, more discipline, to live healthier, to “really” feel my body and to question pretty much everything. Humbleness! And to NEVER COMPARE!!

“Comparison is the death of joy.”
― Mark Twain

Amazing for just a few “Poses” and “Oms” 😉

I am sure Yoga is not for everyone but maybe almost everyone 😉

It is so important to be open minded, try new things and give them a chance for a while.

To be ignorant and intolerant doesn’t bring you anywhere. Just try!
