I would consider levitation possible, but very impropable (as well as extremely difficult.)
It's like telekinesis, but instead of just lifting a small object, you are lifting yourself. Which is typically well over 100 pounds.
Think about how hard it would be just to physically lift a person into the air using your hands. Now imagine trying to do it with your MIND. You can
see why this would be difficult.
I believe that levitation is possible, but it requires a ridiculous amount of training and energy. And I don't think people would be able to just fly
around at will. You may be able to lift yourself up for less than a minute, and then you would run out of energy and drop, and be completely
exhausted. I would say there are probably less than fifty people in the world who can actually levitate at will.
There is something called Mahareshi yoga which is devoted entirely to "Flying Yoga". Most people are only able to perform gravity-defying hops
though. Like sitting cross-legged and then bouncing across the room in hops. It is worth noting that the founder of this type of yoga is a known scam
artist, though. And it has also been posed "Why should he need several helicopters to fly around India when he can levitate?"
