Dudes, do yoga. It’s not just for women. The first impression of the practice of yoga to a dude might seem like an activity for bendy flexible women wearing tight bright clothes. We may not admit it, but that can be an intimidating scene to walk into. We see people bending like pretzels and think that to be “good” at yoga we need to fold, twist, and bend like we see other do to be “good at it...
