I've written about and am passionate about encouraging more men to practice yoga. Each day this week, some of yoga's most respected men will answer a different question about men and yoga. This group all has unique introductions to yoga, diverse backgrounds, and different practice styles. Massive shoulder injuries lead one yogi to hit the mat, while another yogi reluctantly came to yoga "kicking and screaming." My hope is that one of these men inspires you (a man, or a woman too!) to hit the mat. Today, the men share how they began their yoga practices.
