They Laughed When I told Them I Was Going To Take Yoga in Seattle


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.


Who knew? Not any of my friends who laughed when I told them I was going to take a yoga class at Lab5 Fitness. I guess guys in Seattle like those tough sports.


I confess that I thought yoga was sort of an “easy sport” that mostly women participated in. I was pretty fit and honestly didn’t think it would challenge me.


Maybe yoga in Seattle is just tougher than anywhere else. But I don’t think so. Instead I think yoga is an action packed, demanding sport that frankly came as a pretty big surprise to me.


• Increased fitness. When I started to learn and master new poses, I became more balanced, flexible and stronger.


• Less stress. I stopped thinking about my day, the stress of my job, and everything I had on plate. I felt calmer and less stressed – not just in class but throughout the week.


• Weight loss. I actually lost weight. Even though I wasn’t really trying. I became more aware of what I was eating and less inclined to eat because I was stressed or bored.


I began to notice I had a lot more endurance. My coordination improved, I was stronger and had a higher level of fitness. That helped me with every physical activity I did, including a few team sports.


My friends stopped laughing about taking yoga in Seattle when they saw the benefits. And now they join me in saying “I am a guy living in Seattle. I take yoga classes.
