I begin my Sunday with some thoughts on exercise…..
Just a thought about those Yoga Nazis.
People who think that their exercise routine should be the routine for everyone. Those people that give stink face to anything (meat) cooked on a grill.
I read an article about some school districts that are banning yoga from the campuses….
Is it because those pants are too revealing? Is it because people are being tied in knots and injuries abound? Why would Yoga be banned?
In certain parts of the United States, it’s getting more and more likely that rather than a game of dodgeball in gym class or a round of Heads-up, Seven-up as a break between lessons, students will instead find themselves doing downward-facing dog. The internet is saturated with yoga-based lesson plans, teacher-training courses, and “mindful” music playlists designed for schools, while programs for certified yoga instructors who want to bring their practice onto campus have also gained popularity.
While up-to-date data on the prevalence of school-based yoga is hard to come by, a 2015 survey led by the New York University psychologist Bethany Butzer identified three dozen programs in the United States that reach 940 schools and more than 5,400 instructors. School-based yoga programs, Butzer and her co-authors concluded, are “acceptable and feasible to implement.” The researchers also predicted that such programs would grow in popularity.
Interesting that religion is the reason….not some physical thing….or some wardrobe malfunction……but rather religious competition…..
But then again it is a different age…..
Me? I’ll stick with my walking and my cheeseburger…..
I hope you have a ducky day…I shall….chuq
