6 Things Any Man Should Know Before Their First Yoga Class. Yoga for Men 101

By Asana, Dublin, Matt Quigley, Motivational, Wellbeing, Yoga, YogaHub

When I did my first training to become a Yoga Teacher I had never been to a Yoga Studio and I didn’t have a clue about the whole ‘Yoga Industry’ as it wasn’t something I was interested in. I was just interested in the practice and didn’t care whether I was practicing beside 30 men or 30 women. And it’s just as well as when I arrived at Anand Prikash Ashram in Rishikesh I was the only man in our…

By Matt Quigley, Meditation, Mindfulness, Motivational, Wellbeing, Yoga, YogaHub

So it’s a week after my first blog and setting the intention to stop complaining and I did not think I’d come to such a massive realisation. Or realisations even!

So What’s with all this Hot Yoga?

By Dublin, Humour, Teachers, Wellbeing, Yoga

So What’s with all this Hot Yoga? There’s a very good chance you’ve read that Craigslist yoga mat ad. If not – you should – it’s fairly funny. Here it is at MindBodyGreen. This ad very much confirmed my preconceptions about hot yoga and after a long period of raising eyebrows and sticking up my nose at the very concept of hot yoga, I attended a class at the Hot YogaHub.
