It is a rather ludicrous and irrational to say that the devil can slip inside of you while doing yoga or meditating. Come on, as in, do you know how the devil works? And that cannot happen when you are yawning? or have you ever seen someone good turn bad after doing a tree pose?? baseless, non-factual and non-scientific.
Do not be fooled people, yoga and meditation is healthy, very healthy, relaxing, lowers stress and despression, boosts immune system among many other benefits. I do this stuff everyday.I started doing yoga over 6 years ago and I can tell you that it has made me a better person in all ways. Physically, I used to get many injuries after my morning runs but after doing yoga consistently and meditating, I just don’t get those injuries anymore. I have also built more muscles while doing yoga, using body weight, gravity and desire, all the fancy equipment you need, as my teacher says.
I also used to have back problems due to bad posture while using computers but now that is history, my back never hurts and I feel great everyday, without any evil slipping inside of me. In fact it has made me more spiritual, more forgiving and just a more peaceful human being.
Stress? does not occur in my vocabulary because I do yoga and meditate everyday…yes exercise and unwinding does help too but nothing beats a great class of yoga. I used to get pissed off during power black outs as I work mostly online but after doing yoga consistently, that is a not the case anymore. I actually enjoy it as I get time to do other stuff like read a book, smoke some homemade bacon or visit mum.
When I lost my niece, yoga and meditation helped me a lot by keeping me strong and peaceful in a very trying time. That is why I really almost get annoyed (then I take a deep breath) when someone just says something bad about yoga and meditation without any evidence, no witnesses, just hearsay, not cool yo, chillax and breath.
