I had a ballet conditioning dvd, best workout dvd I've had besides 10 minute pilates lol. I actually used it, and it worked.
I sold it, I don't know why, I might just buy it again I miss it, it was a good workout.

I think saying Our Father is great, too, but I would certainly understand if the parents of certain kids, in a public school, didn't want them to say it.

Why not just a contrite "we'll change it. Sorry?"

Maybe I simply don't take enough emotional weight on the matter, but I don't read it as sarcasm. I just read it as "you think it's religious, fine, it's not required and you can opt out." Same as if people think letting their daughters know about their reproductive systems will make them un-Christian - while I disagree, they are welcome to opt out, and should be allowed to do so. (Note: my opinion is different for some of the inappropriately graphic stories I've heard about things which are taught in some schools.)

lol, I like the superintendent's response too and I do think there was well-deserved (IMO blahblhablahblah) sarcasm there.
....As school kids everywhere get Christmas off?

An optional yoga class at school is the least of those kids problems.

Speaking for myself I sometimes get sarcastic when I smell complete and utter bull ****.

I don't get it.

Upthread it was said that Yoga can cross the line from the physical to the spiritual. Therefore, it wasn't something that some chose to do

The superintendent's response was that if posing evoking spirits (moving from the physical to the spiritual), don't do it.

I get that the word "simply" can be a little sarcastic, but you can't have it both ways. You can say it but others can't?


The belief that yoga is practicing another religion is more conversative than my personal views, but people have the right to that view. But isn't it a general rule that the more conversative somthing is, the stronger criticism it may receive?

If they are your beliefs, by all means, belive them. But with the conservative nature of them, you take on the added responsibilty of carrying a heavier cross. Why get so bothered that others don't carry the same cross or have choosen not to agree with you?

It's not like I mentally form an opinion about something and label it "conservative" or "liberal" and plan my behavior around those labels or how other people will regard my opinions.

I'm not bothered that people don't share my opinions. I just don't see the point of all the sarcasm. If an orthodox Jew says I'm not doing this or that on friday night or saturday bc of their religious beliefs, I don't respond sarcastically. I'm just like, OK.

Indians who pradice the Hindu tradition often don't eat beef...but they wear leather. It doesn't exactly make sense to me and it doesn't reflect my personal beliefs or practices. But what do I care??? More power to them.

Why is the teacher being sarcastic? The parents don't want their kids doing anything related to hinduism. "OK, sorry...by all means, we will respect that."

I think the sarcasm comes because, even if public schools don't say Our Father, there is still a lot of implied Christianity - like the school calendar and holidays, as curlyarca said. So this is OK and everyone should suck it up, but a yoga class isn't OK?

Blocking out G-d.

If you ask me, our nation's children (and adults) desperately NEED to learn how to find peace and comfort from within, and should be looking for it anywhere they can find it.

One can meditate without it being remotely religious. My SO is a hardcore atheist and he meditates daily.

ITA that our public schools and life are soaking in Christianity and anyone objecting to THAT gets a pat on the head and an eye roll when they turn their backs.
