Among 40+ guys who don’t do yoga (which is to say, among most 40+ guys), I think there are three reactions when I tout yoga in OlderBeast articles.
1. Inspired to try it. Man, I hope there have been at least a few of these…please?
2. Tuning me out. Kind of like the grown-ups in the old Charlie Brown TV specials – blah blah-blah blah.
3. Feeling somewhat persuaded, and a little motivated. But not enough to overcome remaining hesitancy or inertia.
You in Reaction mode #3? If so, this is for you, dude.
Here’s a step-by-step, no-commitments way for you to figure out more about yoga, try it, and decide if it’s for you. This envisions a 4 to 6 week period, after which you can “fish or cut bait” on the whole topic of yoga and you.

Often, knowing what we should do isn’t enough. Sustainable change requires seeing obstacles clearly and changing behavior thoughtfully. And sometimes, feeling accountable to (and getting a friendly push from) someone is critical.
