Then you keep on going on with your bad self...because it really seems like they're listening to you. [insert sarcasm here]

We get it, you don't like Yoga and you're Christian. It's been repeated so much in this thread it's ridiculous.

Let me tell you what I see. You're accusing people of being argumentative, stirring the pot, trying to derail this thread, etc. I personally think I might be the only one derailing this thread, which ends with this post. I can only see that you're initiating this behavior if...it's really happening, which I'm not reading from other's posts.

And now that I've said that...the end. Carry on. I'm so sick of seeing your posts in here, I'm leaving the thread.

I said ~~~~~~I~~~~~~ am not comfortable practicing it.

Why are you so invested in what I practice? Do you.

You are taking this waaaaaaay too personally. Plz get some perspective. The thread said to share your thoughts. I did. let it go.

Also, could you please stop acting like you're above this thread. Face it, you're down here on the same level as the rest of us mortals.

I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

Glad to see nothing has changed around here. Lululemon pants are TOTALLY worth it. I have five pairs (don't hate, it's not like I said yoga is anti-Christian or anything). I also have a couple of pairs of Lucy pants, but I don't like them as much. They ride up and give me camel toe. I have yet to find a pair of Athleta pants that flatter -- even the most relaxed fits are still cut for straighter figures.

I'm still on the search for a short-sleeved shirt (not a tank) that is fitted enough not to flop over during inversions and low-cut enough not to smother me during forward folds. I'll spend $100 for a pair of magic butt pants, but I won't go above $30 for a t-shirt.

Magic butt pants!? I'm looking for magic "shrink your whole midsection and upper thighs pants". I'll pay for those and a good workout bra that doesn't smoosh my boobs together so that it appears I have no boobs when I have large Cs or that has no support that I can't jump during my workouts without say "aahhhhoooowww"
I've been having soreness/pain/stiffness in my mid-back for years. It's constant. Do you guys think yoga will help? I'm 18 btw, if that helps.

I worked out a lot but never stretched so my muscles were so tight that it hurt my back when I leaned forward. Yoga helped relieve the pain and also creates lean misled so your body slims out instead of bulking up.

I started doing yoga in part because I have a worse-than-typical case of scoliosis. (Whenever I mention to people I have scoliosis, lots of them say, oh yeah, me too. But most don't really have it like I do. I was literally 1% off from a curvature deviation that would have put me in line for surgery and a brace. So mine is pretty bad.)

Without yoga -- or some other form of core-strengthening exercise -- I am in chronic pain.

OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
I had a look for yoga games for my Wii today. Does anyone have any suggestions for good ones?
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.

Also, there isn't a routine or a game, just individual poses, I guess to teach you the poses so you can come up with your own routine.

If you find a good one, let me know!
I have the wii fit one. It's better than nothing.

This thread (religious arguments aside) has made me dig out the Vinyasa Flow yoga DVDs I bought over a year ago at Target. They still have the plastic on them! Anyway, they are by Seane Corn. Anyone know if she's any good as an instructor? Any advice. I really bought them because she's got amazing hair! Maybe her yoga teachings will tighten my curl?!

I just did 20 minutes yoga, I feel so light....I might float away.

Thanks, Multi. I'm going to break the plastic tonight and give it a try.
