Here's a one-minute documentary on the Yoga Boys. I love that these lads have such a great sense of humor about themselves. They aren't letting anyone keep them from the peace and joy yoga can offer. It is about time we see more boys and men practicing yoga in the west. Yoga isn't just for women or hippies. We can all benefit from a deeper connection with ourselves.
I always find my teen and pre-teen boy students' reaction amusing when I tell them that historically, yoga was dominated by men. It is only in the Lululemon age that we hold the idea that yoga is only for women. I look forward to a future where practicing yoga is normal no matter who you are.
