I couldn't help but think of my awesome older brother when I saw this on Yoga Dudes today. He used to be in Army R.O.T.C. and I could totally picture him smiling at this pic. Want me to help you do that pose, bro? :)
I imagine that yoga would be a wonderful way for military guys to relieve some of the stress and tension that comes along with their territory. A while back I found this NY Times piece on army recruiting programs that incorporate yoga into the fitness routines. It's reassuring that they can take some of their experiences to the mat, too. And build some great flexibility!
Anyway, I'm thinking of you, brother. Lots of love from (about to be snowpacalypse-d) Chicago! XO
PS Readers, do you know any military men who practice yoga? Get them to write in for the Real Men Do Yoga series!
