This video is called “Guys Try Yoga for the First Time,” but, guys, we really want to know, is this what yoga is like for you?
From the folks at Buzzfeed, the video shows a few dudes stepping onto the mat for the first time resulting in a dubious combo of confused faces, super tight hammies and socks. Save for the awkward scenario of a private one-on-one (plus camera) setting and singing bowl solos, this may actually be a pretty accurate depiction of what it’s like for guys in an average open-level class. You want me to put my foot where? Feel my energy what? Balance on my hands and kick my legs out how? “Pretty sure this is break dancing.”
It’s kind of funny and cute, but it’s not really fair. Hopefully, there would be a bit more guided instruction and more of an intro in real life (like mayyybe no side crow for the first yoga class?), but we also know there are some guys out there who jump right in with that mentality of “I see women do it before so its not a big problem for me.”
But we want to hear from the yoga dudes out there? What was your first yoga class like? Or if you haven’t yet tried yoga, does this make you more curious? Or does it has it reaffirmed yoga as your worst nightmare?
