I found myself in a yoga class by accident last weekend. You may wonder how this is even possible, but it happens to me more often than you might think. In fact, I find myself doing unexpected yoga so often that I keep a yoga mat permanently rolled up in my car precisely for such emergencies.

Not that I'm complaining or anything. Yoga is great for the body and an excellent way to quieten my restless mind. All that stretching is awesome for my flexibility, and the breathing practise helps calm my nervous system.

Yoga practise offers a myriad of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits. So as I looked around the room in between Warrior Two and Child pose, I couldn't help but mentally assemble my Top 10 Reasons For Guys To Go To Yoga Class:

Most of the girls at Yoga wear slightly more than this.

10. There are ten times as many girls as guys

9. The girl:guy ratio is 10:1

8. For every guy, there are ten girls

7. The women outnumber the men by ten to one

6. Every guy is surrounded by ten girls

5. Ten girls for every boy

4. There are only a tenth as many men as women

3. Girls/Guys ≈ 10

2. Girl Girl Girl Girl Girl Boy Girl Girl Girl Girl Girl

1. Downward Facing Dog

I took up yoga in my late teens. I was going solely for the health benefits, I wasn't a creeper at all, but a *lot* of the women there couldn't resist initiating a fling with a young, fit male. I was still only going for the health reasons, but what 17 - 25 year old guy is going to turn down what amounts to free sex?

Women might say men are perverts for going to yoga for the female:male ratio, but almost all of the women there are just as perverted. If you're what they're looking for, they don't even have any tact about it.

Any moderately attractive young male that's reading this: Take up yoga. Now. You won't even have to try.

This was not funny at all. Men who are going to read this are going to go to yoga as a means to stare at women's bodies, which is going to ruin everything. I know you think you're trying to be 'funny' but i can assure you this was perverted and a terrible play at comedy.

Very funny Graham. I counted at least three boys in my yoga class last night.
