Yoga Dudes

Question of the day: Do yoga classes separated by gender help or hinder yoga’s accessibility? In other words, is the “Broga”-fication of yoga making it more approachable to guys or is it just another douchey construct further enforcing a false definition of male vs female yoga? A writer for Bustle, a women’s interest website, might [...]


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 [...]


Clemson University’s football coach shows us his unique style of yoga in this cute promotional video from the school’s sports department. The usually intense Coach Brent Venebles’ leads a somewhat intense, yet relaxed-ish yoga class with a bunch of willing, and maybe a tad confused, students. The YouTube description reads:  “Coach Venables isn’t always the [...]

Props for the blocks. [...]

But, hey, with yoga’s growing ubiquity at fitness centers and gyms across the country and George Foreman III’s apparent affinity for the practice (or its [...]

The world watched former paratrooper Arthur Boorman transform from a Gulf War vet who could barely walk to a lean mean headstanding yoga machine. He did it with a hell of a lot of will power, better nutrition and DDP Yoga. That’s Diamond Dallas Page – former pro wrestler turned yogapreneur – Yoga. We talked to Arthur, and [...]

OMG we love this so much. Tough, courageous, life-risking firefighters of the hard streets of Newark, of all places, are finding a way to stretch, de-stress and breathe with yoga. Good old Jersey. “Firefighters need to learn how to de-stress,” said yoga instructor Debby Kaminsky. “Working with firefighters is similar to working with military PTSD [...]
