I hope that the world turns, and things get better.

Yoga is stretching. Deep hard stretches that help improve flexibility over time.
Yoga improves strength with resistance exercises using your own body weight.
Yoga improves core strength and cardio recovery through plyametric principles.
Yoga encourages relaxation through practice as you learn to relax physically and mentally as your body gets used to it and technique improves.
Yoga massively helps improve balance, some of the positions are very difficult to stay in at first.

If Yoga was found to be no different to stretching in the morning, you have had a very bad experience with a very bad coach.

To say nothing of increasing circulating beta-endorphins, and oxytocin.
It's measurable.

Riffs: Now that's what I'm talking about. THERE'S an explanation I can live with, and happily so. THANKS!

How is what riff's said any different than what I said? I didn't mention anything about shakras and chi or woo-woo. I'm talking about yoga the form of exercise. It's not just stretching. It's poses that require supreme core strength, balance and muscle strength. Granted Riff when into more detail but our posts were the same.

Further - my reply was to the OP, not you. So I dunno why you seem to think I need to calm down?! Consider

Definitely. ... I also see improvements in timing, power and speed in sparring and pad drills. Improved sense of range and generally better technique. I am confident all of these things are measurable.

Also, since doing more Yoga, I am less injury prone in grappling, which I doubt is measurable but I put it down to improved flexibility.

My reply was supportive of Cathy's point Smile

RE: Yoga is bullshit. People who do Yoga are mentally retarded. Sorry.
LOL Cathy, I indeed saw the same similarities - however, no reference to the 'shakra, aura' etc shite (which I took to be the op's basis for this post) - in addition to calling out said 'Pussy'. So...I just may have misread and not quite understood it as the 'same' as Riffs. By all means though - I completely agree with you, totally...if it keeps me out of 'Pussy' status. Wink
