As we learn to accept and integrate all aspects of our self, we move closer to our true Self.
For most of my yoga experience over the last decade, I was the only male in class. Yoga makes such a positive difference in my life, I wondered why men seem to avoid going to yoga. I heard many times, "I'm not flexible enough to do yoga. Besides, only women go to yoga classes, right?" I answer with a resounding "NO!" Yoga is for every body, men's bodies included.
So, put away your preconceived notions of what yoga is or is not. Touching your toes is not the goal of yoga. Getting in shape is not the goal of yoga, although both of these can happen. The goal is to have no goal and simply BE in your body as it is showing up on any given day, warts and all!
Join me for 4 weeks and learn what yoga really is all about; learn what you are all about; learn how nice it feels to mindfully move your body. Byproducts of consistent practice will be a stronger, more flexible body and greater connection between your mind, body and spirit.
