For beginners and practitioners alike there is currently so much that it is hard to find out where to begin or how to progress further. This is the place for Yoga practitioners and teachers to freely share "real" yoga knowledge and experience and to help each other deepen their practise.

"Knowledge, like air, is vital to life. Like air, no one should be denied it"

~V for Vendetta

Yoga at its heart is Freedom from all chains. In ancient times Yogi's were few and none had the temerity to masquerade. A liberated soul was identifiable by his stillness and complete self sufficiency, only by needing nothing could a Yogi give of himself. And so Yogi's were connected to all life and served all of humanity and all of humanity sought to give them shelter and respect and life flowed.

 

Today, separating chaff from wheat, pearls from beads is the most taxing task which faces a newcomer and we are here to help. Millions are turning to Yoga and yet do not have the background understanding of what it is they are starting and what to look for in a Guide. Many deserving and diligent practitioners have struggled hard for decades and then abandoned their practice when the mental and spiritual results they had hoped for didn't materialise. We have worked with Yoga teachers who have been teaching for decades and yet find themselves fearful and even depressed.

Here at Occupyoga.org, we are building a community of practitioners of all experience and ability levels, yes ALL, where Yoga can be explored free from the risk

 

of exploitation and like a real world community, open, frank and truthful sharing of all things good and bad in the Yoga world. Just like with us, this is the only way in which the Yoga world itself can become still and clear again.

A Hindu View of 'Christian Yoga'

article 2

 

"Southern Baptist Seminary President, Albert Mohler, when he speaks of the incompatibility between Christianity and yoga, arguing that "the idea that the body is a vehicle for reaching consciousness with the divine" is fundamentally at odds with Christian teaching."

 

"Most of the 20 million American yoga practitioners encounter these issues and find them troubling. Some have responded by distorting yogic principles in order to domesticate it into a Christian framework, i.e. the oxymoron, 'Christian Yoga.' Others simply avoid the issues or deny the differences. Likewise, many Hindu gurus obscure differences, characterizing Jesus as a great yogi and/or as one of several incarnations of God. These views belie the principles stated in the Nicene Creed, to which members of mainstream Christian denominations must adhere. They don't address the above underlying contradictions that might undermine their popularity with Judeo-Christian Americans. This is reductionist and unhelpful both to yoga and Christianity."

You want the Truth?

Yoga is about Truth what is REAL - seeing it and being content to accept Reality, right NOW, no matter what nonsense you have been told by others or you have been telling yourself. Hah, and if you think that you can pretend ... you are wasting your time. No lies, no fairy stories, no fluffy softee pandering, no stroking of ego's ... 

are you sure you are ready?

Be honest and see what happens...

Few there are that will endure a true friend.
H. G. Bohn

1st March 2013 - Content coming soon!! meanwhile - here's some Poetry..

 

It was six men of England
To learning much inclined,
Who went to see the Yogaphant
(Though all of them were blind),
That each by observation
Might satisfy his mind.

The First approach'd the Yogaphant,
And happening to fall
Against his broad and sturdy side,
At once began to bawl:
"God bless me! but the Yogaphant
Is very like a wall!"

The Second, feeling of the tusk,
Cried, -"Ho! what have we here
So very round and smooth and sharp?
To me 'tis mighty clear
This wonder of an Yogaphant
Is very like a spear!"

The Third approached the animal,
And happening to take
The squirming trunk within his hands,
Thus boldly up and spake:
"I see," quoth he, "the Yogaphant
Is very like a snake!"

The Fourth reached out his eager hand,
And felt about the knee.
"What most this wondrous beast is like
Is mighty plain," quoth he,
"'Tis clear enough the Yogaphant
Is very like a tree!"

The Fifth, who chanced to touch the ear,
Said: "E'en the blindest man
Can tell what this resembles most;
Deny the fact who can,
This marvel of an Yogaphant
Is very like a fan!"

The Sixth no sooner had begun
About the beast to grope,
Then, seizing on the swinging tail
That fell within his scope,
"I see," quoth he, "the Yogaphant
Is very like a rope!"

And so these men of Englandstan
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right,
And all were in the wrong!

MORAL.

So oft in theologic wars,
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
And prate about a Yogaphant
Not one of them has seen!
