Real men do yoga, just not in Abu Dhabi

An editor in the office, of the male persuasion, enjoys going to the local yoga studio. I ran into him there one Sunday, in an ashtanga class. Unlike Canada, where yoga classes are increasingly a 50/50 split between women and men, here he was the only one in the class.

But this is a different place, a place where men do not do yoga. Yoga classes are packed here. I have only ever seen one other man in a yoga class. Anyway, I asked the editor today how he was liking yoga, and if he'd been going, and he told me an Emirati woman had complained about him, and now he is limited to three specific classes a week.
