Men in Yoga Pants. {Hilarious Photos}

Jackie Aude M.

A picture is worth a thousand words, right?

That’s why Men in Yoga Pants exists. But the truth is, there just aren’t enough men stretching and posing in yoga pants.

We created this project because it’s odd and fun. An unsettling sentiment among several in the athletic apparel community suggests yoga pants “don’t work on some women’s bodies.” So, we went ahead and decided to showcase the versatility of yoga pants on men—of all types.

That, and there are just too many gross websites dedicated to “sexy women wearing yoga pants.” Let’s push some social constructed gender boundaries and stop the hypocrisy. Or at least try.

For more of these ridiculously hilarious photos, check out the website here.

I have been teaching yoga to all age groups- seniors, kids, middle aged adult men and women, etc. Mind you I don’t cultivate a Western look- I have a long beard and long hair so I don’t look like your traditional hipster yoga teacher but I rock these yoga pants!

As yogis and yoginis, it is part of our daily practice as a spiritual beings having a human experience to cultivate a healthy ego with the focus on intention and consciousness. This is directly linked to the mind and breath. If you know how to bring this message to your students along with great asana alignment, assisting and adjustments, your students will receive a message of higher vibrations, of a deeper self awareness of who we are at our essence- radiant beings of light. Pure love. Then they see and hear this message, not what I look like in my tight yoga pants. Although, one may be distracted for a moment, by my pants, there to-do-list, random thoughts, etc., it is up them to strengthen their connection to the mind and breath and return to the subtle flow of ujjai breath and that natural feeling of calm and peace bringing them back to stillness and centered once again. It is all about intention and consciousness and what is your message as a teacher. Very simple.

Or you could wear Lycra Cycling Shorts. People are already used to seeing them even in public places.
And them you could also shave the whole body.

"We are brought into this world naked….thats how it's meant to be"
