Taxi Yoga in NYC

Yoga isn't just for women and this article by the New York Times proves it. We all know that using yoga can help you relax your body and mind, yet yoga is typically seen as an activity primarily revolving around women. However women are not the only species on the planet that needs stress relief from the daily idiosyncrasies of life. Men, particularly cabdrivers (a very niche group of men), are also in dire need of a mind, body and soul cleanse that only yoga can provide them.

According to the Times, a study conducted in 2008 found that many cabdrivers suffered from such ailments as back pains, neck pains as well as sore heels, knees and feet. And given the sedentary nature of their jobs, many of them are also overweight. No wonder cabdrivers seem so crabby!

Anyway, so this guy who used to be a taxi driver ended up creating a Taxi Yoga class for cabdrivers to help them be more at peace with themselves and their mind and body. It's definitely an interesting concept and I commend this guy for doing what he's doing for men who clearly need yoga. And you know what this means? It means that more men may consider getting hitched with Yogahitch because Yogahitch works not just as a yoga mat carrier, but as a super absorbent towel to wipe away sweat. Plus, it can make hard yoga moves a little easier in some cases and can keep new yogis from slipping on their mats.
