“Why Schools Are Banning Yoga”

My perspective: fear.

The following article presents the religious intrusion perspective, but even before reading the article, this is the truth I know. When I do yoga for my health and well being, as a Christian, I am taking care of the temple (my body) God gave me because that is what I am supposed to do.

Plus I do yoga for me because the movements and poses relax me, stimulates my body and its organs for good health, and helps to prevent injuries by keeping my body limber and flexible. Proof is I am sixty four, healthy, and active. I take no medications and I have more flexibility than people much younger than me, as noted by a yoga instructor a few months ago when I participated in a few of her yoga sessions.

A perspective to consider is anyone who is fearful of yoga needs to examine what they are truly fearful of because yoga, like anything we do, becomes what we choose it to be. Yes, for some it is a spiritual practice, but for others, yoga is simply one important way we take care of ourselves simply because it works, like walking.

Therefore, please don’t throw out yoga because children need to learn early how to best take care of themselves and yoga as a health practice excels. And do not worry if a child choose to see yoga as a spiritual practice–remember everyone has the right to choose their own beliefs. And if your belief brings you peace and joy, your children will come back to the belief after they have explored other beliefs, so do not fear, but rejoice in the benefits to be reaped by all, especially their good health.

Love knows no denomination.

Love does not expect qualification.

“Money Talk: She makes triple his salary”

“Peter: [Now that we’re married] we both have the same viewpoint on what we want to spend money on, and most of the time it’s not stuff, it’s experiences.”

“Vanessa: I haven’t made the comparison of how much disposable income or purchasing power I have now to buy things like shoes and bags vs. what I did when I was single. I want to say that it’s actually increased, at least that’s how it feels, because there’s just a financial benefit to being married. You’re spending as much money, or maybe more, if you’re cooking for one person than if you’re cooking for two. That’s where the savings really is. His additional $40,000 contributes to our pooled income, but we only need to buy one bedspread. That’s where it feels like both of our purchasing power has increased by combining our incomes.”
