Yoga?
#1
Cry!!!!!! I just wrote my whole post about yoga and it disappeared because suddenly I was no longer logged in! :'( is this a sign, that possibly answers my question:

Is it OK to do yoga, strictly as physical exercise?

Please no scare-mongering. I want to understand this intellectually, for myself, and to be able to explain to others why one should not give yoga for a different sport, if necessary.

As far as exercise goes, I am very limited in what I can do because I have deformed feet. I do yoga because the spastic, high-energy workouts are impossible for me. Pilates and other gymnastics are also work. But all I have now are yoga DVDs. None of the workouts that I do advocate religious elements, they are given by fitness instructors, and completely focused on the psychical. Any breathing techniques involved are related to the body and to aid the poses. I always find any kind of esoteric explanation of the poses distracting and have promptly avoided any yoga teachers or videos that incorporate them. I really wish that the Church would take an official position on this. As usual, confusion abounds. Help and don't hate me because I do yoga. I have currently suspended the practice until further clarification.
