THE REAL BOYS OF YOGA!
It was in 2015 that the ‘BOYS OF YOGA’ hit Instagram and became the new face of yoga for men! Don’t get me wrong, what Michael James Wong created back then is inspiring and uplifting and their website is full of some awesome content for all yoga students, however I’m also conscious that the ‘boys of yoga’ don’t represent the masses.
Just taking one look at their Instagram could make you think that the only guys who practice yoga are young, slim and trendy (is that even a word still?). Unless you’re sporting a man bun and carrying a skateboard to work on a daily basis I don’t think you’ll truly feel like you’re ‘one of them’ however, the message is good. Smashing the stereotype of yoga being a female thing alone is a great shout in my book because whilst this is the stereotype it is far from the truth!
At Studio One we have a solid base of awesome guys who get on the mat and practice every week and these guys are REAL! They are men of all ages, with varied jobs and a story of their own and we love them…
“If you’re reading this you’re already debating trying out yoga for yourself. You’ll probably be procrastinating and coming up with all sorts of reasons and excuses why not to try it (I speak from experience because I was that guy…!). Trust me the hardest part of yoga is walking through the door to reception and remembering your left from your right! What you waiting for??”
