BC Living 2012 - Iyengar Yoga for the Reluctant Man

By Catherine Roscoe Barr

Iyengar yoga will appeal to anyone wanting to develop a strong foundation for lifelong flexibility, but especially to the uninitiated man who craves pragmatic instruction and is wary of yoga's woo-woo side

On a sunny Saturday morning, my husband and I went to our first Iyengar yoga class – and his first yoga class, ever – at The Yoga Space, located just behind the Olympic Village on False Creek in Vancouver.

It took me 14 years to convince him to come to a yoga class and it was worth the wait because there could not have been a better class for his introduction.The class (and Iyengar in general) was very different from any other kind of yoga I’ve experienced, from Moksha to Ashtanga to Kundalini.
