Guys for Yoga, Yoga for Guys
Here is Matt sharing his yoga journey with us:
I’m a guy and I like yoga. I have not looked back since I discovered I enjoy it better than jogging, weights and cardio work outs at my gym. Well, I tried yoga in the beginning to supplement my gym routine but now it’s the other way around, I do more yoga than traditional gym training.
Where do I get all this time you ask? I’m taking a break from relationships, I date occasionally but for now I’m just enjoying a relationship with myself. After all, you can’t move ahead if you don’t know yourself and that goes true for both career and relationships. Yoga has helped me zone in to myself, pretty much like mediation and exercise. Well, I’m a guy and I like to simplify things, yoga for me is workout without all the impact. I found that I like it. Many other guys I know attend yoga classes, some attend with their ladies and some go with their friends. For me, game time, dart nights and occasional drinks is with friends but yoga time is for me.
I moved to Auckland from Perth and settled on a good job five years ago. I felt used and frayed, yeah, all that drama that women moan about all the time (with all due respect ladies, I am here moaning too). Took me long enough to get a promotion and with that I entered the dating scene with more confidence. I have always dabbled in dating, mind you and have had some success, however, a better salary and title at work doesn’t always equate to happiness or something that resembled happiness. It looks to me that some higher ups are handling the job and all that comes with it in a more ‘together’ way. Heard rumors in the office that a number of senior managers were taking yoga classes so, because I have nothing to lose, I tried the nearest yoga studio.
Three months into it and I know for sure that my senior managers’ secret in staying on top of their game is definitely yoga. Auckland is not a place for the weak of heart. So get into training to measure up, I recommend yoga training for men. Gents and ladies, yoga works, plain and simple.
