I was planning on going to a hot yoga class today, because I find them fantastic (although more importantly, good for my health), but now I’m hearing that it’s not safe during an epidemic. Does seem absurb (probably like a drug-user not using needles) but I believe complaining about the
mother risk showering at public swimming pool while there some influenza germs around so even though the risk might be low, none of us wants the flu and shouldn’t take any risks. And isn’t a close environment like yoga studio propagating germs?What do you think? Thanks in advance. Steven, ITGS

is it ok to do yoga with sore muscles
1) Check with your health professional (chiropractor, physical therapist etc) or yoga instructors as to whether it’s ok to do your yoga according to your pain level and flexibility. Have compassion and listen to them. Try not push yourself beyond what you feel is safe at this time.You may find
it better in the long run if you do not push yourself beyond what is smart and safe, resulting in further injury. You can set your own schedule of limitations, but have wise advisors advise you on your yoga program in general or when it is time to return to
yoga after an injury.If that is not possible, then I recommend doing modified yoga postures that suit your current physical state.Please be more mindful of feeling “good” rather than slipping into a “have to be perfect, do everything” competition with yourself toward self-acceptance and healthy recovery.Ensure to take good care!Ann

is kundalini yoga dangerous?
Answer:There are many American- and European-trained Kundalini Yoga teachers who are doing it much more dangerous than Tantrikas do. More people here in Nepal and India, including some westerners, die in Tantra yoga practices than in the US. Certainly there is erotic massage and sensual practices as well included in
higher Tantric teachings, but Kundalini yoga is, I have to say it, just too extreme for all that. Because you need to have trained your body and mind before going into tantrikas, you will experience the incredibly tremendous subtilties of Tantra much better, once you’re able to do all those
psychotic contortion regimes of Kundalini yoga. You will enjoy the practices of Shantivanam and Pinakin with much more positive results. Kundalini yoga by itself is like Alpinists practicing walking on ice with no crampon devices to give an idea. In Japan many students slip and never coming back up so
it is – often practiced because their tradition does not provide them enough sitting meditation and exercises. They bought their dignity for the US$ 4 training fee!The strange fact is that some westerners go to India, begin with
is vinyasa yoga cardio?
8. I like to eat and cheat, but when I get upset… …it’s tough for me to follow that instruction from a popular weight loss app. What would be your first gesture to a crying student?9. I do yoga for strength, balance, stability and flexibility.. ..what about me? According to
the legend of Patanjali, there are 8 rungs / steps (ashtanga) of yoga. These are: Yama Niyama Asana Pranyama Pratyahara Dharana Dhyana Samadhi According to the legend of Patanjali, there are 8 rungs / steps () of yoga. These are: Asana. This makes me think of stretching, asanas, and taking
it easy on the practice – which is very New Yorky!– like in the studio, there is lots of hip bumping and egos. What strategies do you use to keep this at bay? NYers will stretch harder and kick faster here than they would back home – how do you
keep your practice centered and the room safe? 10. I heard big news this week? Is the yoga world going to erupt into revolutionaries expelling royal dictators of

is yoga a cardiovascular exercise?
Steven and I have an agreement: I do my body-pounding workouts at the crack of dawn and he’ll get up and quote me some killer yoga times. But neither of us anticipated the results of this particular study done by Gary Hunter and Michael Toner, researchers at Texas Christian University
in the US.Hunter and Toner used indirect calorimetric data and heart rate monitor information to measure the energy costs of a set of yoga exercises. The exercises were performed using “the standard five-pose Sun Salutation A” and “Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon).” When these two exercises were compared to for same-level
aerobic intensity activities like walking, jogging, running and cycling, these two exercises were found to be respectively energetically equivalent to 94 and 74 percent of the aerobic response for walking. While these results aren’t surprising, the upside is that yoga does not produce significant long term increases in blood pressure
or heart rate compared with low intensity activities.The take away from their results is simple. A study like no other has demonstrated that yoga is by itself cardio exercise. So bring on your rollerblades and your run battalions as you try to burn
All the large systems of philosophy in India were together called ‘the six systems of philosophy’. Hence, this common proliferation of systems all came to be called ‘Hinduism’. It was only when Hinduism was threatened politically on account of its acceptance of different religions and philosophies within its fold, in
order to protect itself, that it decided to emphasise the common spiritual thread to be found running through all these systems. Hence the influence of the tradition was relinquished to priests, who mostly belonged to those Brahminical sections which had become more dependent on magic and miracles. Thus the people
who had a bias against Shivaism and Buddhim and other deities who were not exulted in Western and Eastern practices joined forces with the priests of both Hinduism and Islam and for no good cause and great dishonour to both religions tried to prove that the different languages were totally
distinct and totally incompatible by tracing some similarities in two languages belonging to two groups which were in no way connected historically. As verse 6.11 to 6.16 declare, such is the nature of the world. (See XII,14 and XVII, 7-8.)The Upanishads declare their openness and accept
