Hello Leslie, I find this new section great, because this is exactly what I need more of. I love Yoga, but I add more and more mindfulness yoga, like Yin Yoga, etc. on my list. There are some wonderful Yoga-Qi Gong mix videos, which I love. I would be curious about pure Qi Gong videos as well. Thanks for being part of grokker and developing it nicer and nicer!
I am a practicing christian and a yoga lover. I wanted to preface that, because everyday I have to seek out my best self to give to God. Many people have the misconception that christians shouldn't do yoga. I may not come from a Hindi or Asian spiritual thought process, but anyone who understands christianity knows we believe we are soul beings. I have practiced yoga for almost thrity years. I have a large group of christian friends that are devoted to doing yoga. I know doing yoga has brought me a calm focus in prayer, it keeps my core strong, my posture in check, my muscles pliable, and my healing at times of injury has been more successful. I developed clinical anxiety with my third stage Hashimoto's Thyroiditis about eight years ago. The various yoga breathing and focus on the moment have helped me through some serious attacks. And, they have prevented me from going into full blown attacks when I know the triggers have been set. I would encourage anyone with uneducated ideas about yoga fitness to give it a try. Most yoga instructors are not pushy about the religious aspects of yoga. Hope this helps someone, who may be misinformed.
