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

My reply was supportive of Cathy's point Smile

Exactly. So I'm not sure why he is telling me to breathe but saying your post was finally an explanation he could live with...

My primary experience is in martial arts. I am an instructor for a living. So it is from that point of view of personal experience I say this ...

People who are unfamiliar with things like Yoga, Pliametrics, good gym practice and many types of martial arts, ie: they have never set foot in a gym, or had experience with a reputable practitioner or coach, can only base there oponion on media portrayal, movies and marketing. The 'image' of a lot of these things has been bastardized and woo wooed up to the max to appeal to the lowest common denominator. The health and fitness industry is not heavily regulated so a LOT of fads and utter bullshit is out there! If there is no science to back it up, it's bullshit. If it contradicts science it's steaming bullshit. My advice for any of these activities is do your research then experience it for yourself, and, if it looks, smells, feels and tastes of woo, it's woo Big Grin

I called the OP a pussy because anyone who says yoga is "just stretching" and that it's no harder than the stretch you do when waking up,
Is a pussy.

I submit to you all that yogurt is not, in fact, made of bullshit but is, instead, made of probiotic dairy products and bacteria poo.

I've taken yoga for years along with tons of ballet. Yoga is more than just stretching and this ain't just something you do when you get out of bed in the morning. Some yoga practitioners do get kind of metaphysical about it and woo-ish but that's up to the individual. The hardest part of yoga, besides the difficult positions, is trying to shut the mind off and relax the brain. Westerners have a hard time with that. Damn that's hard for me.

There is a lot of technique to stretching. Certain muscles are relaxed at the same time that other muscles are tensed ever so slightly. Hip placement is very important, position of the neck is important, alignment of the spine and so on.

Damn. What a stupid statement. Yoga isn't bullshit.
