Editor's Note: Much fuss has been made about the lack of representation for men in the yoga community and on the covers of certain national yoga magazines, but men are certainly making strides in yoga. This video chronicles one man's journey with ex-pro-wrestler turned yogi Diamond Dallas Page's "Yoga for Real Guys" program. His jaw-dropping evolution shows how anyone can transform their body. At first you’ll see that he was unable to walk without the aid of canes. By the end of the video, he’s doing headstands and RUNNING. Unbelievable! Yoga truly is amazing!

Yoga


 

by Judith Hanson Lasater

What drew me to the practice of asana was an intuitive feeling that these movements were not just “stretching”; they seemed to have some greater connection with my soul. It was only later after years of training that I began to learn the deep symbolism each asana represents. I now believe that each asana represents an aspect of myself and as such offers me a powerful doorway inward. Thus for many people the practice of asana can become more than a physical act; it can be a form of moving meditation.

 

Editor's Note: With the emphasis on asana practice here is a great article from a well known teacher that explains reasons we do asana beyond the physical and asana as meditation.
