Practicing Yoga is a tool to become more flexible, it is not necessary to be bendy to begin with!

Le Male Yoga, New York City’s only Yoga Studio for Men, is on a mission to debunk the many myths and misconceptions surrounding yoga and provide a fun community for all men to workout and practice yoga.

Starting a regular yoga practice, Le Male Yoga highly recommends to take it easy and enjoy being a beginner. A beginner workshop/series or private session provides the perfect setting to properly introduce yoga and build a solid foundation with challenges a beginner can succeed with rather than getting frustrated by jumping into an advanced level class. In order to be able to make a commitment to yoga and most importantly to have fun, it is crucial to find a teacher and style that resonates with the new practitioner!

Besides that intuition, it is essential to make sure that the teacher is properly certified, preferably with additional certifications to supplement his/her knowledge and has ample teaching experience.

Werner, who teaches most yoga for men beginner series at Le Male Yoga, says the most common misconception men have about yoga is that it is necessary to be flexible in order to take class. ‘Wrong! Practicing Yoga is a tool to become more flexible, it is not necessary to be bendy to begin with!’

Another of the many myths about yoga is that it is a ‘girlie thing’. Fact is, Yoga was created by men for men. Recently more and more men started to incorporate yoga into their daily fitness regimens again and many professional athletes and sports teams hire yoga teachers to keep strong in body and mind to enhance their performance.

Along the lines with the misconception that yoga is only for women, men often think yoga is too easy and not a real workout. Yoga can be as physically challenging or as restorative as anyone wants. It hugely depends on the style of yoga and teacher, but regardless of style, yoga poses will help the practitioner to gain strength, balance and flexibility.
