I once tried to teach my husband Ashtanga yoga. We got through Surya Namaskara A but only with much complaining and bickering. We made it to Parsvottanasana, which by all intents was a miracle.
My short-lived stint as my husband's teacher made me realize some things about men and yoga.
The Code of "Dude Yoga"
1. No chanting. At all.
2. Counting from 1 to 5 should be done faster
3. Skip the weird Sanskrit names of the poses
4. Ujjayi breathing is "like snoring"
5. No matter how hard you try, levitation cannot be achieved in one session
