Dr. Robert Heller

I am a psychologist and yoga practitioner. I would like to know where is the "evidence" associated with the claim that " the hip holds fear, guilt and sadness in the pelvis." And the implication that these poses will eliminate it.

I'm in agreement with Carl & Michael, I know yoga isn't for women only but I really would like to see more men on the cover and in more articles. Especially men older. Please make it clear yoga is for everyone's benefit. Yoga Journey should be the place to start!


my hips opened up in two gives from the inside of my thigh or was almost like my hip bone pulled out of my pelvis in two movements..scared me,,but it was the side where I always had a sore knee and tight it feels really that normal?


I am in agreement with Carl H. I see too many women and not enough men doing yoga. I was very disappointed to see the last half of the Yoga Journal covers adorned with women. Looking through Yoga Journal I see a magazine catering to women. Let's please get the word out that yoga is for males also. A magazine called Yoga Journal seems like a great place to start.

I have been doing yoga since the age of 21. I am now a 63 year old man and still love to do my yoga; I could not imagine stopping it. Currently 2 evening classes a week plus personal at-home practice. I have trouble understanding why I am usually the only male in a room full of women. This is extremely good for men as well; why wouldn't everyone do this? I'd like to see more articles for older men as well. We should counter the appearance that only beautiful young women do this exercise which has carried me through a prolonged late middle age quite nicely.


Your link above to the sun salutations does not work.


I love this sequence. I had pain at the tops of both hips off and on for quite a while. The chiropractor didn't help. After doing this sequence regularly along with other poses the pain is gone!

I know that yoga seems to be a 'woman only thing' as suggested my many magazines, but there are some of us(men) who do practice. Any chance of articles etc for us older men(60+) ? Can I get your magazine in the U.K.?

Alan Inglia

These practices are very good. I am 62yr old male & have only done yoga for one year, but do lots of TAI CHI. However, I have very tight hamstrings. Is the a yoga sequence that you could suggest that may help me to overcome this. I am in the U.K. Thanks very much for any help you can offer.
