Meet Our Man On The Mat
Meet Do Your OM Thing Yoga’s Man on the Mat Blogger!
This blog documents 10 weeks of Strong Vinyasa Yoga from the point of a Yoga newbie.
I work full time and am a father to two young children, so I don’t have a lot of time, or a big budget to exercise. However I make most of the cheap gym membership I get at work and am looking for a stretch programme to compliment my strength training.
I don’t have much experience of yoga, I’m not very flexible and I’m not getting a lot of sleep at the moment, so I'm hopeful a yoga practice will help me relax and recharge my body and mind.
Before my first session I was worried about:
My tight hamstrings; forward folding and touching my toes is a pipe dream!
Will I be the only guy?
Would I feel the benefit and enjoy an endorphin release like I get from a workout?
I need to give this a decent go, so I've purchased a 10 class pass and Yoga essentials: a mat, a block and a strap so I'm ready to go! -Hence the nervous laughter in this photo.
First class £5 (for guys or girls) when you mention Man On The Mat Blog!
