Edit: changing title to "Yoga".
Anyone remember Naked Yoga on late night TV in the eighties? Channel 4, of course.
I'm not so sure about Yoga day, but there should definitely be a Yoda Day.
Forgive me, but didn't yoda practice yoga anyway?
And there was me, thinking that yoga was the plural of yoghurt...
A Jehoveh Witness colleague of mine wouldn't practise Yoga because of the same reason.
I'm very much enjoying the yoga programme that come with the Wii Fit.
This is possibly the most boring comment I have ever made on any FT thread. I think I'll shut up now.
Its notboring after all.The boringness of the comment suggests that the yoga prog is controlling your mind.
Before I damaged one of my left sesamoid bones in a drunken stumble, I praticed Hatha Yoga.
It was a genuinely amazing experience, quite physical at times, a lot of stretching, but the most amazing thing was the Pranyama or breathing exercise.
It became quite clear to me why the latin for breath is spirit.
Energising your body by breathing correctly as opposed to the shallow breathing that most of us do everyday is simple, yet extremely effective.
The relaxation exercise (or horizontal guided meditation) was possibly the most relaxing experience of my life.
I miss it, but sadly can't squat down or put much strain on my left foot, so I have to make do with self guided meditation and breathing exercises.
If you've never tried yoga, have a go.
It truly is amezzin.
Those of you extolling the virtues of yoga should read this article. It didn't do any good in the long run

See, I knew I was right to think TV was better in the olden days!
It wasn't a series, it was a short film. I was staying up to watch Woody Allen's Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex and when it finished, this Naked Yoga thing came on. Being a teenager, it was like all my Christmasses at once! It's listed on IMDB, but I don't know how scientific its methods were. Lynn Marshall would not have approved, I suspect.
I recall watching that one with the sound down as a teen. Either I tuned into the wrong bit or it wasn't the full-on porn fest the 13-year-old me was hoping for.
Yeah, it's more like Woody Allen's Dirty Joke Book with not much sex in it at all. But you don't watch the Woodster for that kind of thing anyway.
Just my thoughts, but he was probably detained because he was only carrying a small bag. Not having any luggage can trigger off the 'profiling' by the security people.
I had it happen to me the one time when I flew to America. The airline lost my luggage, so I got the third degree from the Department of Homeland Security. Now it's happening here.
Down with this sort of thing!
Yoga is very interesting discipline. But good are translantions eastern original texts. Many of them is freely on the net, like:
Sat chakra nirupna, The serpent power, Shiva samhita, Gherandfa samhita .............and many others.
In eastern yoga texts are different two possibilities.
A path to achieve nirvana = end the cykle of lifes and death. And a path for obtain siddhis and better life.
Please tell me you don't know a website that has siddhis on special offer! :?
Well...you did ask...
And another priest getting himself into contortions.
A priest from Glendermott parish in Derry has said that yoga and Indian head massages will lead to the "Kingdom of Darkness.”
Fr Roland Colhoun said that people who practice yoga risk being drawn towards the "bad spiritual domain" of "Satan and the Fallen Angels.” Fr Colhoun told the Derry Journal: "Pope Francis said ‘do not seek spiritual answers in yoga classes’. Yoga is certainly a risk. There’s the spiritual health risk. When you take up those practices from other cultures, which are outside our Christian domain, you don’t know what you are opening yourself up to." ...
I wonder how he feels about actress Janine Turner's Christoga? Or Jesocize, which is her Christian Jazzercise? Personally I'd find it difficult to tell the difference from just looking.
