Absollutely, the breating is really what makes a difference between yoga and other forms of exercise. Breathing deeply also makes you more agile when you do asanas. And not to forget, the mental benefits you mention.
Like that you get calm and relaxed by doing deep breating, Lenie. That's the whole purpose of it.
What a pity that it doesn't work for you, Erica. It may be because of your neck surgery as you say. Hope you suggest to your grandmother to start doing classes with Tao. She will most likely love it because it will make her feel like she's on drugs. May just give her a dose of energy that makes her feel, and seem, 20 years younger.
Yep, and in America you may just elect a president that is a good example of patrimonial capitalism, even if he, wrongly, claims to be self made.
Spot on, Jeannette.
The book is really thick so I read a short version. But do read it. The world today is really similar to what Europe was like between the two world wars. If politicians don't get their act together and start reducing inequality there will be upheavals. Maybe even revolutions. The Russian revolution took place between the two world wars and Hitler was elected. Similar scenarios will unfold now. Already has in the Philippines, actually.
Glad, but not surprised, we agree something needs to be done, Susan. If patrimonial capitalism increases we will get into a period in history where demagogues get into power, make the situation even worse and revolutions/uprisings will follow. Sigh..and all because of the greed of the top 1%
We agree completely, Ramona. Or as Erasmus of Rotterdam put it in the 1500s the rich are in conspiracy to make to make money at the expense of the poor while pretending it's benefits the poor and not them. Sigh, and poor people are voting for politicians who will make them even poorer. If they understood economics they would not. that't the drawback of democracy.
