Man Versus Yoga

by Jim Ward

Since 2016

The Legend of The Man.

Once upon a time there was a man named Jim. He found himself as a gracefully-aging former athlete+artist. He needed an outlet -- an outlet for passion, frustration, and sheer lunacy that is life.

Going to Yoga for the first time is a scary experience. Jim dreamed of engaging in Yoga back in his days sitting above a brass band at the tail end of "Free Yoga Night" at Austin's famous and now defunct coffeeshop, Ruta Maya. Every time he saw someone walking with a Yoga mat in their bag, he wished he could be them. Jim was envious of the experience they were about to undertake. He was sullen about his absence from doing what he really wanted.

Jim tried learning some Yoga by watching YouTube lessons. He found some joy in learning the basics, yet lacked the true connection to Living, Breathing, and Focusing his mind and attention on perfection, poise and winning.

One day, Jim mustered up the courage to attend Yoga. The rest, is history.

The Jim Ward is Man.

Meet Man, and the transfiguration of Jim.
