Some Humor – What if Gandhi took an American Yoga Class?

Someone told me about this Youtube video that satirized what it might be like of Gandhi took an American yoga class.  I think there is a lot of truth in this video (humor has a way of doing that, after all).  Yoga is not about tight abs, strong arms, and beach season; it was intended as a spiritual practice and a tool used on the path to enlightenment.  Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha), in fact, practiced yoga and claimed that it aided him in his journey toward Nibbana (nirvana). I imagine that Gautama would not consider the American Fitness Industry’s version of yoga anything remotely similar to the original practice.

Here’s the link. Watch it. Enjoy it. Laugh. 😀
