The results are different and I think the people are very different, looks and personality wise. Way way more people that crossfit talk about it than people that do yoga in my encounters. Crossfit people always look more muscular and douchey in my opinion.
There are two different things at play here. First is my perceived notion that women wouldn't find men who do yoga a lot (like more than them) attractive. That was the initial riff which maybe completely off from reality. However, I kind of don't care what people say on here, I think girls would think it was weird. I don't think guys have much interest in dating a girl that can bench more than they can either, so it's just a gender role thing, not a dislike if yoga thing.
In terms of yogas effectiveness, I'm not really denying that at all. Personally, I know I get better workouts doing other things but that's not to say I wouldn't derive any benefit from yoga. I find yogis about as annoying as possible. For example, this statement annoys me a little...
"Eating better/portion control came after i started the yoga. Gets your mind and body right. Big supporter and believer in Yoga."
I mean, I guess if yoga works for you as a workout better than anything else, go for it. But, it's not like you don't end up at the same place from just about any other workout (crossfit, circuit training, kickboxking, etc...).
For me, and I'm just speaking for me here, hearing "yoga totally got my mind centered and spiritually balanced" is as vmoit inducing as "crushed my CF workout today, which is the only way to workout, BALLS TO THE WALL!!!!"
