For some reason there is the residue of a stereotype lingering around that men don’t partake in yoga. They absolutely do. Most of the poses that we twist and turn our bodies into during our regular everyday yoga practice were developed by men.
A quick search of Instagram will bring up thousands of accounts featuring yoga poses and the people who are working towards perfecting them as the subjects of the photography feed. A large majority of these subjects are men.
In fact, major athletes (mostly male, it’s just statistical) use yoga to stay loose, recover from injury and protect from potential injury. Yoga strengthens the joints. Stronger, limber joints and muscles are less prone to injury that those that are tight and weak.
Yoga is for everyone. While women definitely have a leg up in the world of yoga pants, it’s important for manufacturers not to ignore the fact that yoga plays a huge part in the lives of many men.
However, that is not the case for my husband.
He’s one of those people who doesn’t “get” yoga. It’s not that hard to understand, but I digress, I’m not having that argument again.
Instead, I would like to thank him for partaking in my adventure to discover the best yoga pants for men.
Although, all he really did was try on comfortable pants while I examined them for flaws as well as perfections, took measurements and investigated fiber content.
Much like the creation of our children, his part was easy.
