    @Alixwhitney:  I wouldn’t have a problem with it. What’s the difference between teaching yoga and teaching anything else?

    My husband isn’t a yoga kind of guy, so it would be weird to me in that sense.

    @Alixwhitney:  You are over thinking things.  If you believe he would d yoga/teach yoga to see/touch women, why are you married to him?  Obviously you can trust him to be around attractive women without cheatinyour you’d have never gone through with the wedding, right?

    So?  If he likes yoga that much, you had to have known…

    Not really sure what the problem would be.  I mean, I’m female in a male dominated field and picked up my husband at work, but he’s not insecure about me working here.

    The thing that’s a bit odd to me is that he wants to join a class OR be an instructor– who decides to be a yoga teacher when they’re not already in a class? Tell him to join a class, and once he’s been in one for a while he can figure out if he wants to be an instructor.

    Why is this weird? The place I do my hot yoga, is all male instructors. I’ve never given this any thought. There are also a number of males in every single class I’ve ever attended.

    But there’s a big difference between attending a class and becoming an instructor. Becoming an instructor is alot of work and time consuming, but I would certainly support my FI if he told me he wanted to do this.

    I’m confused. What would be the problem with him being in a yoga class or being a yoga instructor? Do you not like yoga? Not like excersize classes in general? Only like single sex gyms? Think men shouldn’t do yoga? If you tell me what the actual concern you have is, I’ll try to respond, but I’m not really sure what the issue would be so it’s hard to say.

    I’m still trying to figure out the problem. Is it that he’ll be around women? Does he go out to run errands or just basically live? Women will always be around so I’d let it go and quit being insecure.

    It would only be weird if he’s creepy about it.  (Like he’s only doing it because he wants to touch other women or something).  If he’s serious, he should become certified.

    I told my husband that I’m thinking about becoming a certified personal trainer, and he thought it was great and was completely supportive.  If you have an open, honest, trusting relationship, then you have nothing to worry about.
