I am a guy, living in Seattle. I take yoga classes. No, I am not starting a 12 step self-help group. The truth is yoga is a hard, action packed sport.

  2. 2. They Laughed When I toldThem I Was Going To Take Yoga in Seattle
  3. 3. I am a guy, living in Seattle. I take yogaclasses. No, I am not starting a 12 stepself-help group. The truth is, yoga is a hard, action packed sport.
  4. 4. Who knew? Not any of my friends who laughed when Itold them I was going to takea yoga class at Lab5 Fitness. I guess guys in Seattle like those tough sports.
  5. 5. I confess that I thought yoga was sort of an“easy sport” that mostlywomen participated in. I was pretty fit and honestly didn’t think it would challenge me.
  6. 6. Maybe yoga in Seattle is just tougherthan anywhere else. But I don’t think so. Instead I think yoga is an actionpacked, demanding sport that franklycame as a pretty big surprise to me.
  7. 7. • Increased fitness. When I started to learn and master new poses, I became more balanced, flexible and stronger.
  8. 8. • Less stress. I stopped thinking about my day,the stress of my job, andeverything I had on plate. I felt calmer and less stressed – not just inclass but throughout the week.
  9. 9. • Weight loss. I actuallylost weight. Even though I wasn’t really trying. I became more aware ofwhat I was eating and less inclined to eat because I was stressed or bored.
  10. 10. I began to notice I had a lot more endurance. Mycoordination improved, I was stronger and had a higher level of fitness. That helped me with every physicalactivity I did, including a few team sports.
  11. 11. My friends stopped laughing about taking yoga in Seattle whenthey saw the benefits.And now they join me in saying “I am a guyliving in Seattle. I take yoga classes.
