I don't practice yoga at all, but I find the argument pretty pathetic, even if the other party thinks their point is a rite. It my rite to believe it that way eh?

Welcome to Socialist Canada.

Even looked it up on the Ottawa Sun, and it has a poll, asking "Do you think there are elements to Yoga that are Racist?"

Could care less, yoga is stupid.


One day someone or something will come to end something you do care about. They will make the attempt under the guise of that activity being non-inclusive. When it happens, hopefully you'll be able to find enough people that do care to successfully do something about it.

Let's outlaw that Tai Chi crap too.
Those freaks in the park, offend me.

After that, we'll discuss Mimes.

BS non-story. There's more to this than what is reported. That's why it doesn't make sense.

The Daily Mail is as palatable as bell cheese.

I teach yoga, three classes a week. They can bite my ass.

I haven't appropriated anything.

What, next non-Italians won't be able to eat pizza?

Tw!ts that themselves, I bet, practice yoga in secret


I think something else is goin g on at that campus, don't know what. But banning this class because it's offensive re the original culture is....weird. It doesn't matter if the yoga has been westernized, it benefits people!

This is the examples of 'PC' out of control that I can get behind.

Yes we stole the practice, but if we got rid of everything we stole then we wouldn't have jack.


The thing is, many Indians teach such classes, and yoga in the West actually got going because several prominent yogis from India were sent by their masters to the West to do exactly that!


Ha ha, I teach a regular class at the local gym where I have three *Indian* women who come all the time!

Someone wake me up when this "generation of the offended" is over.

Please and thank you. Don't want to offend anyone.

Go ahead and provide evidence. I wouldn't be surprised if this is true at all.

That's about the 'western culture' being infected. But the OP is about offending the original culture. All BS.

My sentiments.

"SO WHAT". "WHO REALLY CARES"

No one owns Yoga. That's like saying you have a copyright on prayer. That no one can pray without your permission.

It's a type of exercise and state of being. NO COPYRIGHT.

The original source on this is the Ottawa Sun.

What's your basis for saying there is more to the story that's not being reported?

If the world has culture to share...we should, and if everyone already knows the origin of the culture, what's the harm?

Here's another one that blew my mind. the PC police have release a guide on how to eat without culturally appropriating your food.

Can't just enjoy the food of other cultures anymore, now you have to feel guilt ridden about it. The parts of culture that were once the most effective bridges, are now a reason to self-flagellate.
