Though they may not admit it, for a lot of guys stepping into a Yoga studio can be pretty intimidating. “Real Men Do Yoga” author John Capouya told Boston’s NPR that men “don’t want to go to a room in front of a bunch of women and the person says, 'OK, shining upside down dog pose' and you don’t know what she’s talking about and you don’t do it and you’re behind.”
Well luck has it and a new version of Yoga has emerged geared specifically to men: Broga.
Broga touts itself as "...a yoga class geared for men (where it’s okay if you can’t touch your toes). Strong, energetic,and challenging, Broga combines the best core-strengthening, muscle-toning, cardio-working, stress-reducing, clarity-enhancing yoga postures with functional fitness exercises for an amazing workout." Namaste.
