I have to say that I must be honest and upfront about how I came to yoga. And what I mean by this is that at first I was not very enthusiastic. My first impression with yoga was that I just thought it was for girls and that unless I was going to do ballet or dance, why would a "man" do yoga? I was devoted to my gym habits and working out. I loved the idea of getting big and buff and adding mass to my body.

But as I got older and going to the gym became monotonous, I started to look for something else. At first I was mainly getting into more sports but something in me was yearning for something more. What exactly that was I wasn't sure of yet. One day I was walking down the street and I passed by a yoga class. I saw the teacher leading the class and everyone looked so peaceful. More importantly (for me at least) I saw this well built man in the class and I thought to myself "Well, he must also workout a lot" Boy was I wrong. I took the time to get to know this gentlemen and he began to show me how yoga can completely keep your body in top physical shape. At first I did not believe him but I continued on with my workouts and then I got injured one day.

Ok, so my body is telling me something but what. Then I was sitting at my gym and I saw this other well built "man" come out and he professed his love for yoga. My mind still had a hard time believing that yoga could actually have this kind of impact. But this was now the second person telling me this so there must be something to this.

Well, I finally decided to take a yoga class and holy cow did I realize how hard this was. Yoga is not as easy as many of us (ok, at least me!) thought. Holding those poses for so long is quite hard I must say. Well not only did this improve my health physically, but mentally as well. As years went on my whole outlook on life completely changed as did how I perceived my body and what I do with it. Ever since, I have been devoted to my yoga practice and eventually launched a site on how to become a yoga teacher. I now support many aspiring students on their path of building a successful yoga career and absolutely love it. Not only did it change my life from a health perspective, but from a business one as well.
