Yoga really is the ultimate in training for the mind, body, and soul. It's hard to imagine what India would be like today were it not for 5,000 years of yoga enlightenment. Millions of people might be shitting in the streets with millions more poking through that shit to find sustenance. Thank you downward facing dog for preventing that nightmare.
In modern times, yoga's been a boon to people like myself who make sophomoric sexual jokes about women bent into unusually nimble body positions. I'm not without remorse for being so cheap, unless a woman's shoving her genitals skyward in a thong in the middle of a city park. Then I feel like we've met halfway.
