I am performing the Whoarethesemorons Asana, which involves placing my face in my palms and sighing.

My mother raised me on the phrase "Never underestimate the power of idiots in large groups." I was prepared for this level of stupid at a young age.

I do believe the pledge of allegiance mentions God which means you force children to recognize a deity that they may not worship, every, f'in, day.

Yoga: Created in India, therefor is part of the devil, as India's religions believe in reincarnation.

/Christians are so farking stupid.
//christians die once and stay in Heaven, unlike Zombie Jesus.

Jesus farking their Christ these folks are dumb. Oh no, kids are being indoctrinated by stances Hinduism - seriously who are these clown farks? The 80s called and they want their boogeymen back... Next thing you know they'll be decrying the evils of D&D and how it makes young people commit suicide.

"There's a deep concern that the Encinitas Union School District is using taxpayer resources ..."


The lessons are funded by a $533,000, three-year grant from the Jois Foundation, a nonprofit group

So much THIS!!!

These people would go full tard if anybody wanted to do away with the Pledge of Allegiance but oh lawdy if they are introduced to another culture.

The kids that were pulled out of the classes probably need the stress relief yoga provides more than anyone else with parents like this.

How much does a hippy dippy teacher and a couple mats and incense cost? Because I promise I can subcontract for half.

Yoga saved my life and made me a more centered calm person.. so this is really sad to hear that parents would take away something that could bring such peace to their kids.

I would guess not. These are more the kind who don't want their precious snowflake subjected to anything potentially offensive or damaging. I suspect they're the kind that want both Halloween and St. Valentine's day banned, but for different reasons.

Not too surprising.The Southern Baptists really have a hatred calling it a corrupting influence that will turn the children in to moral less heathens.A number of Catholic dioceses, Baptists groups, Evangelical groups around the US have it as a grave threat to your soul, and so parents tend to listen to the guy who they been told to never question, or you will be doomed.

From Wikipedia: "Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is different from many yoga classes in the west in that the order of asanas is completely predefined. A practice will comprise four main parts: an "opening sequence," one of the six main "series", a back-bending sequence, and a set of inverted asanas, referred to as the "happy ending" or "finishing sequence.""

At least the girls will get some career training.

Saw this in the news out here in San Diego about two weeks ago.

Went "SERIOUSLY!??!"
 
2012-10-22 11:02:22 PM
Religion? That has been debunked a while ago as a largely modern invention. I'd be more worried about injury from people who don't know how to do it right.

Wouldn't you think the community of Encinitas would embrace this? I think this is utterly ridiculous. They read books in the Hindu religion too should we stop all reading in our schools?

Did not realize that Math and Yoga were mutually exclusive in California's curriculum.

Because making a big scene about 'protecting the children' from a non-existent threat makes them look like they're 'being active parents.' Who wants to be the little hellions of these morons have no discipline and take no responsibility for their actions, but Mom and Dad just point at their anti-yoga campaign as proof that they're good parents.

California has begun the shift to extreme republicanism/facism. This is not due to the fact that American's are shifting that way, but due to the overwhelming number of residents from other countries which flood into the state yearly.

California has ceased being part of this United States and is falling to China's attacks.

Move here legally, keep the same culture, vote for Chinese desires, turn the country to them. They are breeding their own to become "legal" citizens to control the vote here...who knows what happens when they spread.

They've won...get over it. America no longer exists and if you are a white male (white females are great for breeding) you are worthless now. Chinese love black guys so you're pretty safe.

Ha ha. Yes they are. Thanks for going for the low-hanging fruit.

anyway..

My only question is - are these yoga classes happening during class time?
If it's during PE, who cares? If they're taking time away from actual subjects,
then it's a problem. I only suspect they're happening during class time because
people are opting out. If it was after school, I imagine you'd have to opt in. BUt I
don't farking know because all the article did was report the controversy, and
few of the relevant facts.

The New York Times had a pretty good article about Yoga causing serious injuries for long time practitioners. Here's a link about yoga as a modern invention if your curious.

As for those parents, they really, really need a reality check in a bad way. If a yoga class for your kids is your biggest problem your in no position to complain to anyone about anything.

/yoga isn't easy

Ha Ha :-)

I went to the Encinitas school district when I was a kid. They had a bilingual curriculum and were on the "cutting edge" of education. I learned how to say devil in Spanish and I thought that was the coolest thing because I was never allowed to say "devil" around my Christian conservative grandmother. I would run around her saying "Diablo! Diablo!"

Good times

That wasn't my point to you and you know it. You say only "grandma's" are good for their kids. You don't dispute it.

It was also written by a socialist, though nowadays we've got kids saying it robotically and probably not caring what it means.

Yoga saved my marriage because it made my wife a more centered calm person. Hate blaming her for the problems we worked through but its true. She has been at it less than a year and is coming up on her 200th session.In the 8 years I have known her she is happier than I have ever seen her.
