    i was actually able to straighten back out my jaw bone, so my teeth were lined up again using yoga.
    (i grind my teeth like mad)

    by being aware of its position while practicing it eventually became habit.

    Also be aware when starting out that there are a lot of different types of classes. There is hot yoga done in a hot room to make you sweat. There is more advanced yoga. There is some that is approached more as a sport. You go from pose to pose to pose. The poses can be static depending on a teacher. There is also vinyasa type yoga which flows seamlessly from posture to posture. Personally, when I've moved away from a current teacher I look for one who has life in their practice and fits me and my body's needs. It is the cornerstone of my health management. Good luck!

    I really want to get into ballet yoga. I'm not sure I'm that cool yet... that poised and graceful, ballet is not something I've every formally tried out of the comfort of my bedroom. Many, MANY, twisted ankles were had as a child lolz. But I'm looking for ballet classes and I was going to do some at home integration... you just inspired me to look in a different place o_0... thank you ^_^

    Many people do yoga to help there physical bodies but the fact is that yoga is used to do the complete opposite. What it does is it blocks energy channels to other parts of your body so that more of it goes to your head. And what your actually supposed to do is stay in one specific yoga pose for a certain ammount of time untill you reach a state called samahdi where your heart stops beating, you stop brething and you are kept alive by god. Once you have done this you have achieved something called asana and you gain something called a sidha which is some sort of power.

    Obviously its only really yogis that do this and yoga can still be done for some physicall purposes.

    ^ haha

    BKS, yoga is ?

    ' a way of eradicating the instinctual weakness' of human beings
    for some it might be fast, for some it might be slow
    but change has to take place, transformation has to take place
    whoever it may be
    in what ever average of conditions there are'

    im sure he has plenty of answers for that question, and a favored one, but that is pretty good.
    lots of info in that statement.

    hmmmmmmmmmmmm
    There are many benefit to all the Yoga methods
    Most of them are passive.

    The most active benefit is being aware of your 4 body minds.
    [the limbic, primal, frequency and cellular]
    Establishing communication with them will give you
    permission to control the/your bodies [spirit and physical]
    using "Mind-Over-Body" or the newer term "Minds-With-Bodies".

    This ability is the basic psi-ability that enables all other psi-abilities.
    My earliest training [2 and 1/2 yrs old] learning to be a psychic child,
    was Yoga with my identifying and controlling of all my muscles.
    Example: touch a muscle and move it without any physical movement.
    hold the bird pose [with my back to the window] and follow the edge
    of my shadow with my eyes.
    Be in harmony,
    be in beauty.

    yoga is by no means passive

    it is consciousness in movement

    it is like the wind

    it can be a subtle breeze

    or a hurricane

    I've just started doing yoga, so I'm a bit of a beginner. I'm not in great shape or great health either, but that's pretty much why I'm doing it - besides the added calming, releasing stress effect.
    I know there's yoga for a lot of things - releasing toxins, releasing stress, getting in better shape, helping you sleep, etc etc. But I didn't know that you could combine yoga and meditation - the latter of which I've been into for a good couple of months or so.
    So I'm interested! lol
    How do you go about something like that? Do you have any YouTube videos or something that would help me learn how?
    Thanks.

    If your heart stops beating and you stop breathing then you will die and it won't take very long. That's just fact. Saying god is keeping you alive is like saying "Jesus took the wheel". Lol

    I've done yoga once before and I was sore for a whole week! I'm soooo out of shape too and stressed. I'm at a healthy weight but that only last so long. I'm eager to try some meditation and yoga together! ^_^
