There’s a stereotype that yoga classes are just for women. I mean, yeah, if you walk into a yoga class, it’ll probably be mostly women, but that doesn’t mean men aren’t welcome. Lets look at 10 famous men who are breaking the stereotype and embracing yoga. It’s a great workout and if you have any doubts about that, just look at these gorgeous men and their bodies.

Adam Levine, the singer of Maroon 5, is know not only for his talent, but also for his looks. When I say looks I don’t just mean his gorgeous face. He’s quite a proud owner of a very hot body. We’ve all seen THAT magazine cover. Want to know how he maintains that body? Yup, yoga. Who would’ve thought, right? Adam says he’s also a very fidgety person, and finds it difficult to concentrate and yoga helps him focus.
