So, so so proud of my yoga students today! They have grown so much over the semester.  I’m especially proud and excited about the men who come to class.  It can be doubly tough for a guy to come to a yoga class, put himself in a situation that he’s unsure of and uncomfortable with … it’s a big risk.  But these men come with no previous yoga experience and take the risk — and do great!  It’s so hard to take those personal risks but these guys do it.  So proud and them and so grateful to have them in my class!

  1. Just asserting my yoga manhood here. Great article!

  2. For the 6-week class I just took, there wound up being four of us who came regularly, a 50-50 gender split. 🙂
