    My main question:
    Is yoga useful / possible for older men?
    Back in the day, I was an avid martial artist. That was 30 years ago and many, many years behind the desk ago. I am not overweight, but living in hot, traffic-ful Houston I rarely get to the park for even a walk.
    Must I find a class more tailored to an older MAN, that is, not gorgeous 20-something ladies? I don’t want to embarrass myself or seem like a stalker. (I am happily married 33 years…..)

  2. Men doing yoga may be changing ever so slowly but most things in the Yoga world are still geared towards women.

    That said I don’t know why more men don’t do yoga. I have been practicing, at home, for 2 years now and I love it.
