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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Well of course. The church tells you whether you've followed the correct formulaic behaviours, paid enough money to consider yourself sufficiently spiritual or not. Exercise and meditation merely promotes a healthy body and mind, and a healthy mind leads to independent thought.

I took an actual Eastern Religions class in high school, as an elective, since Social Studies was my 'minor' at the time. It has in fact been useful, since I can read articles or have discussions about [Eastern Religions] and not sound like a bigoted fool. We also did a bit of yoga in class sometimes.

In later years (2010), when I told my doctor I couldn't afford physical therapy copays when instructed to go and see if that would help my back, she told me to get Wii Fit and do the yoga program, which I did. While it didn't help the original injury, it made my core muscles much stronger and alleviated some of the pain I'm in daily from other issues.

So, assuming someone likes to learn about things outside their norm, and wants some fitness that is really low impact, this elective would be fine.

Here on FARK we refer to those by their actual name: LEGGINGS.

Those aren't "yoga pants" since they weren't made for yoga, yogi in india don't use them and we'd been using them long before yoga became mainstream here.

Cymbal: So far east,


Are you referring to the fact that modern yoga was invented in California, so even from Japan's perspective, yoga is a far-eastern religion?

sammyk: cookiefleck: 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.

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.


Sorry, bud, that isn't the yoga..... She gets to be away from the house for an hour or two at "yoga" classes and comes home happy, centered and relaxed?

/she's prolly taking the marijuana

From TFA: In an Oct. 12 email to district Superintendent Tim Baird, Broyles called the yoga program unconstitutional and said he may take unspecified legal action unless the classes stop.

Is there a violation of state constitution or other law at work here? Certainly not a first amendment issue: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." I don't see Congress being involved, don't see a religion being established, and don't see the free exercise of religion being prohibited.

For all the folks hating on Yoga- it is similar, kinda, to Tai Chi.
Both help you relax both mind and body, and help one remain flexible ( just in case you like to wrap your legs behind your ears for some reason ) , and breathe well. You dont have to buy into the religious aspects of either, but- they are both good for your body. Just saying and I am not the Subby.
Have a great day, and Namaste

"Right, let's ditch the Yoga to protect the children. Next topic: Let's change science out with creationism."

We wouldn't want to indoctrinate children into any religion before they have formed the capacity for critical thought. That would be tantamount to abuse!

Mine, too!! And I even survived the jokes about her instructor obviously being well-hung

Want to take it a step further, and introduce yourself to a world of awesome(r) sex with your wife? Buy a copy of Urban Tantra, and suggest you both to read and try out.

I promise you, stick with it, she'll see it as one of the most romantic gestures you ever made.

/2 years of utter freaking bliss, here.
//no, seriously, trust me.


Just might check that out. But to be honest our sex life is red hot and we both think yoga is a big part of that.

With peace there is no guilt, without guilt there is no money in the church coffers.

While I'm not sure what these people are on about, it's probably sacrilegious to claim Yoga is separate from Hinduism.

First, congrats, dude!! Second - we also experienced that when we started yoga - the book just augmented the experience, slowed it down and made us connect even more. Now, don't get me wrong here, the slow-fox stuff is mindblowing, but we still have the norty,ruff,fast stuff, just it's so amazing to be able to chose.

And it was us both that needed centring and calmness, and the book was a present from a friend who had read up about the topic.

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.

I can now state that you are a farking sexist pig.

OMG. Don't fark drunk...

MY APOLOGIES...


I was wondering about that...

Smackledorfer:
Not sure if serious.

Managing one's body and mind is a useful life skill. I can't say I have yet encountered a situation that called for ceramics skills.



Oh I'm not serious at all.
Have you ever eaten off a plate? Grown a houseplant? Walked on a tile floor... sat in a bathtub, gotten a filling, ridden the Space Shuttle? No ceramics there, no sir.

But yeah, my kid's time is far better spent thrusting her genitals at some middle-aged wackaloon slurping a chobani. After all, a ten-year-old couldn't manage her body and mind without direction from a qualified yoga instructor.
