Plenty of men practice yoga. In fact, traditionally, yoga was practiced predominately by males in ancient India. As yoga came to the West, it gained mainstream popularity, and millions of men and women now practice across the globe.

According to recent polls, there are over 20 million people who practice yoga in the US alone, and men comprise roughly 25% of that number, or about 5 million. The US has over 323 million people in it, and roughly half are men. So there’s a lot of guys that still need to try yoga! We found a few that gave yoga a try, and they documented it here in this funny video:

Yogi guys! We want to hear from you! Was this you your first time on the mat, or is this just a satirical, stereotypical portrayal?
