Soul Yoga Sanctuary Features Men’s Yoga with Larisa Kenny
Yesterday marked a turning point in my yoga career. Soul Sanctuary Yoga studio in Sarasota Florida was interviewed about their men’s yoga classes by MySuncoast. I was fortunate to be the spokesperson for the studio.
I know how difficult it can be for men to participate in a women-dominated field and I am happy to say that there is finally an opportunity for them to be themselves.
Men get intimidated with a lot of women in yoga because they are less flexible when they start. Creating men’s yoga allows them to be themselves.
Allowing men to be themselves in a yoga class means that they don’t have to hold back both with their emotions and their physique. Because they are usually more muscular, I tend to challenge them a lot and really kick their ass. They have some huge, bulking muscles that often get in the way of their flexibility. This is a very common issue and I like to take a bit of finesse in my approach.
It’s Yoga, Rock and Roll and Beer. What more can you ask for in a yoga class?
