Yoga instructors say it may help to inform many men that some of today's top athletic stars are yoga fans who use the practice to help them perform. Superstars such as NBA star Shaquille O'Neal, former NFL star Jon Kitna and pitcher Barry Zito, as well as entire teams such as the Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Cubs, offer yoga to their athletes to counteract the rough treatment they receive on the field.
Men who attend yoga classes must let down their Yoga teacher training India defenses and not think of yoga in terms of success and failure. The instructors say that yoga is not concerned with perfection of pose or rating someone based on whether they can perform a backbend on their first day in class. Yoga, they stress, is a gradual process where the student comes to acknowledge the mind-body connection. When placed in the right perspective with realistic goals, each yoga session can be considered a "success".
