“Are we sick of hearing Yoga can cure just about anything yet? There are many forms of practice and exercise that will lower your blood pressure. There are way too many corrupt teachers and scandals within the yoga community that increase my blood pressure!”
“$500,000 donation from the Jois Foundation to INDOCTRINATE children into Ashtanga Yoga sounds more like a business deal. Start them young and they will remain "faithful." Yoga has become a BIG business and JoisYoga is reaping the rewards of BIG business! Jois has a clothing line, yoga chains, books, DVD's, teacher training etc...This isn't about the benefits of yoga in schools, it's a BUSINESS. Until yoga teachers are regulated you run the risk of injuries and scandals (which the Yoga business is full of).”

“Please document where it has been shown that those activities decrease inflamation in the body? This is afterall what the article is about, not stress reduction per se. While decrease infalmation does= decreased stress , decreased stress does not equal decreased inflamation.”

“You can get the same positive stress release from many other forms of exercise and/or sitting in a garden. Personally, I was emotionally traumatized by a yoga teacher.”

Try CD's...Rodney Yee is wonderful.”

“Of course I'm sorry to hear about your trauma, but it had nothing to do with yoga. Bobby Knight was an abusive basketball coach but that doesn't say anything about basketball. In the same way, your personal experience with one individual says nothing about the practice of yoga.”
“Most human beings are conceived via the vagina and most human beings enter the world via the vagina. What could possibly be offensive about a body part that enables and delivers life? Religion turned VAGINA into a dirty word. VAGINA should be a scared word.”

Completely normal except every time I leave my house I go out the window.”

“I have three Jack Russell Terriers that all eat a raw diet purchased through the pet store and kept in their freezer. Every batch of this raw food is tested for bacteria before packaging. The chicken has no hormones, antibiotics and also contains organic fruits and vegetables and NO grain, fillers, salt, sugar or artificial preservatives or colorings. I supplement canned organic pumpkin along with the raw chicken diet. My dogs ages range from 1 year to 15 years old. They have NO tartar on their teeth, no skin disorders and NO fleas and they are not overweight. They have regular check ups with the vet and have NO problems. Prior to this raw diet, one of my Jacks had constant bowel problems and difficultly defecating, including blood in the stools. That is no longer a problem! Nothing better than 3 happy, healthy Jack Russell terriers!”

“Many have gone mad having a "spontaneous" awakening! I'm am sickened by this article, "How to....," turning an "awakening" into a simple "recipe," As if following the recipe will awaken the Kundalini (how NAIVE AND IGNORANT! ) The journey towards enlightenment, is the "Pearl of Great Price," not for the faint of heart or soul. Beware fellow travelers, there is a price to pay for this awakening!”

“How incredibly irresponsible to post this video without a warning about the dangers involved in awakening this powerful energy. One should read "Spiritual Emergency: When Personal Transformation Becomes A Crisis" so as to understand what can happen psychologically. Also read the web page, "The Biology of the Kundalini." Many end up in psych wards because they cannot handle what is happening to them. Read about Gopi Krishna's awakening before one even attempts to raise the Kundalini. She will strip you of everything you thought to be true, she will take down your ego, she will leave you naked and exposed and incredibly vulnerable. Know what you are doing! Kundalini is part of the process of human evolution, not everyone is ready for this. You cannot choose the Kundalini, she must choose you.”

“Are you talking about my ex wife? Kidding.
Rather than caution those who embark upon awakening their latent energies and creative capacities within the microcosmic orbit, I would STRONGLY caution and advise all seekers and practitioners of mind/energy expansion to first enroll in courses for self defense, law terminology and monetary strategies.
It is not the abundance of ("scary & mysterious") energy within us that one needs to defend against but the very real and visceral ATTACKS from OTHERS that one will face as a result of becoming fully conscious, lucid, loving and creative:
YOU WILL BECOME A TARGET for all of those who do not want to LOSE CONTROL and POWER over others. YOU WILL be perceived as a THREAT to them. YOU WILL be pulled over more frequently by police. YOU WILL be conspired against by co-workers and at risk for termination regardless of talents, fiscal contribution or time at your employer. YOU WILL be clawed at by your spouse or partner, as they struggle to understand how you can feel so peaceful and complete. YOU WILL be taken advantage of by friends, neighbors, strangers and you will never receive an ounce of energy in return because they are not GENERATING their own and CANNOT give back to you even if they wanted to.
These are the EXTERIOR forces to be aware of as you embark on your adventure. I wish it upon no man or woman...”

“What you have written is so true...we in the west have the opinion that "it's all good" w/out the respect,devotion and complete understanding of the latent power that lies w/in us...Kundalini is much more indescribable power than folks think...Gopi Krishna's book was an eye opener back in the day when i desired to release the Kundalini power...even the extreme practice of Zen Koan can lead to "meditation disease"...and many have gone mad practicing the extreme Tibetan Tantras and solitary 3year 3month 3day retreat's...f/f”
“Is that the equivalent of asking for directions?”

“Why does it take 100 million sperm to fertilize an egg? .......Because none of them will stop and ask for directions.”

“Yes, by which I guess you mean men don't ask for directions. It's true, I'd rather drive around and see the local sights than pretend to follow some tentative gibberish "um, the second, no maybe the third, I think".
Some men's advice is followed by women, almost desperately as though they were trying to prove to him that they could. But most men's advice is not merely ignored but ostentatiously contravened in order to demonstrate how foolish and presumptuous he was.”
