Yoga helps with balance.

Matthew 11:28-30: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoga upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoga is easy and my burden is light.”

"Yoga" means "yoke, join". Matthew 11 actually has "yoke" (an English word); the Greek is "zygon". I translated "yoke" into the Sanskrit "yoga", since "yoke" and "yoga" and "zygon" mean the same thing (and they come from the same ancestral Indo-European word, "yeug-", "to join").

If you are referring to remedial stretching and balancing for the injured, no.

If you are referring to the buncha other things yoga can be, no.

But I am guessing the first.

There are better ways to achieve fitness than stretching for an hour and doing a few parlor tricks.

Yes, I've done it in my hey to help a yoga instructor show their advanced students how to do stuff, I hadn't taken yoga to show strength mattered.

No sweat, really. Except for those freaky Bikram folks.

Active stretching > passive.

Having fun moving > than parlor trick balancing.

Some of the breathing stuff can be helpful. I will give that stretchmaniacs that.

Of course shavasana and tadasana are the respective king and queen of the asanas and they are just an after thought in most programs.

Master those two and forget the rest.

A few times, only the physical stuff. At the end of the exercise video the guy started saying "ohm" in the lotus position and said "come on, you have to be open-minded" and I skipped that section of the DVD.

I don't know what Winfest is. This video was featured on Ray William Johnson a couple weeks ago. Also, if you know her please send her my email. Many thanks.

EDIT: Google knows all

That's no way to gain weight. I'll shoot you a PM after the other 45 things I plan on doing but will not.
