Today is Macho Monday apparently…
Should Men Do Yoga? Yoga Journal‘s Buzz Blog re-posits askmen.com’s rather absurd debate of why and why not, to a call for true stories of “how”. As in, how has yoga positively affected you guys out there? You know, guys who actually practice yoga and aren’t too insecure to admit it.
Oh sure they have an Argument FOR Yoga, but frankly it’s just as annoying as the opposition in its explanation of origins and “benefits” tiptoeing around to be sure not to sound too pansy-fied.
The Argument Against Yoga basically states that yoga is for wussies. Honestly, the whole thing reads like a neanderthal ooga booga response that doesn’t sound very much like today’s man. We could comb through this with the wit pik but it’s not worth our time. It’s obviously meant to rouse us yogadorks into a hurricane tornado made of pranic arms and fingernails and teeth, but we relent. However, we do encourage you to have it out yourselves in the comments of the article, on YJ, or right here. That is, if you’re man enough.
