    yea...don't count on a yoga teacher to remember when to finish her class so the next class can start on time.

    "If you find the right balance between desperation and fear you can make people believe anything"

    "Is enlightenment even possible? Or, did I drive by it like a missed exit?"

    It's simpler than you think.

    I could be completely wrong"

    Indeed , warrior's yoga is a delightful practice and I also support it as a practice in ones life that will contribute to quality of life greatly.

    But, I wouldn't recommend it for a beginner and instead would recommend that you build your practice towards it gradually.

    If you tried to learn kungfu by starting with the most difficult material, it will not be a workable solution...in other words.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    actually, I meant it has "contributed" to my practice in terms of pateients with really messed up backs, necks, etc...

    Talking Here's some interesting yoga for you to try....

    5. Wind-Relieving Asana . Thought fiber was the only natural remedy for expelling excess gas? Think again: this series of yoga postures assumed in asana-based classes assists air in exiting your digestive tract—in a room full of people. The motions involve lying flat on your back and pulling your left, right or both knees into your tensed stomach, squeezing out the stale air or, in instructor's lingo, engaging your abdominal region to assist with elimination. The poses are also said to enhance supine strength and flexibility, making them optimal for those with both bad backs and Metamucil in their pantries (read: old people). "It could certainly be helpful with some individuals in terms of [their] low backs," says Bryant. "But the whole flatulence aspect—I'm not so sure that there's a great deal of physiological support for that being a need."

    The verdict: Group flatu-fitness? We'll pass.

    Do a prayer twist in crescent pose or warrior one and you will probably fart.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    yoga opinions

    dont have alot of time or resources(here in the Deep South). trying to consolidate as much as I can for purpose of time and resources. really interested in tcm/qigong but availability is almost nil. i know yoga is different, but conceptually tied. please, discuss.

    If you don't want to devote time to taking care of your fitness and lack the willpower for weightlifting, what could you gain from attempting yoga?
