Men do yoga too…In fact, here’s our very own Matt “Steamrolla” Frevola…who has a steady yoga practice that he says plays a part in getting him fighting fit (more on that in another blog!)…
And yet there are not enough of them (men on the mat that is)…so we are inviting men that haven’t tried yoga yet to join us on the mat for the month of March. We’ve sweetened the pot by making that initial hurdle – having to pay for something you’re not even sure you want yet, go away. Yep, you read that right – as a man new to Kodawari, your first class is free…and in the meantime we are also going to highlight some of the awesome men that are already DOING yoga…and we will be sharing with you why they do yoga in the first place. In the meantime, here is a short list of what having a yoga practice can do for me…First, it shows that:
He Cares about his Health
This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but taking care of yourself is SEXY. If you practice yoga, you are letting people know that you are trying to take care of yourself — both mentally, emotionally and physically.
He Is Calm And Peaceful
Being full of rage and angst is so over. Knowing that you are interested in and see the values peace and serenity as a positive can be a huge turn on. Being into yoga shows that you have a peaceful mind — or that you are working on achieving one.
He Is Strong And Flexible
As mentioned above, taking care of your body/mind continuum is HOT. And if a guy is going to yoga regularly, he will be strong and bendy. These things come in handy in bed.
He Has An Open Mind
One of the most obvious things being into yoga says about you is that you are probably open-minded. Men who don’t buy into the stereotype that yoga is exclusively for women show that they are way ahead of the typical bros — a huge dating plus.
Well…yeah. A guy who does yoga regularly is going to be fit and have that heathy glow.
He Might Be A Good Listener
Yogis pride themselves on their ability to keep their minds still and stay in the present moment. What does that mean to a prospective date? That you are going to be authentically paid attention to and truly listened to – basically a huge plus if you are trying to share something about yourself.
He Isn’t A Typical Bro
While it’s possible for a guy who is into yoga to also be a mouth-breather who doesn’t care about other people’s feelings, it isn’t very likely. The whole point of yoga is to practice self-awareness and be kind and compassionate. Guess what? These are rather like-able qualities.
He Isn’t Quick to Judge
A man who isn’t afraid to get into the downward dog pose is less likely to be judgmental and will likely be more willing to accept you for who you are. Another potential plus!!!
Here’s a quick video from a guy who doesn’t have a yoga man bun…great instruction and clearly someone who uses yoga to turn it ALL on…
