Re: Yoga, Meditation and Religion

Yoga is more meditation and close to religion than exercise and way to improve muscles. So some people do yoga to get spiritual pleasure.

Re: Yoga, Meditation and Religion

This is certainly a question that has begun thoughtful and passionate conversations. But the simplest answer is No. Yoga is generally thought of as a practice used within certain religions (Hinduism), but the practice itself is not considered to be a religion.

Yoga is something where you can pick and choose which techniques will benefit your body, mind and soul. Each individual can customize a workout suitable for him or herself.

In choosing a particular religious belief, one cannot do that and still call themselves believers in that "religion".

Meditation is the practice of turning our view inward, with the intent to bring focus, clarity and balance to one’s daily life. There are several schools of yoga practice that utilizes some form of meditation.

Re: Yoga, Meditation and Religion

I am trying to redefine my eating into a healthier style with hopefully weight loss benefits. BUT I seem to be hungry ALL the time! And I feel myself slipping back into old habits. Any Yoga poses to help with this?Des Moines Mixed Martial Arts

Yoga is a form of exercise, meditation, and restorative breathing. When practiced regularly, it brings unity to the mind, body and spirit.

you dont have to be religious in order to perform yoga, but you do have to follow the discipline of yoga properly.
