Macho vs Nerd: Men in Yoga

During yesterday's yoga class Al had us pair up a few times with others for assists on poses. One time I worked with Joni and a new girl, assisting each other doing backbends. One person did the Urdhva Dhanurasana, or upward facing bow, while the two assistants provided traction between the shoulders and hips, and helped the heart come forward by pressing between the shoulderblades. It felt really good and we all enjoyed it.
