Zombie Yoga!!!In the last few articles during this series on movement and exercise, I’ve discussed yoga and its relationship to living a Low Density Lifestyle.
I gave you 10 outstanding yoga videos, and then in the next article I explained the history of yoga.
Now you may remember that a few months ago, during the series on humor, I discussed how humor and laughter were things that helped you to feel lighter of mind, body and spirit, and thus were great tools for helping to get into Low Density Lifestyle mode.

It is great if you’re really kinky.

“Make me one with everything.”

If love is the answer, could you rephrase the question?
– Lily Tomlin
1) A student wrote, “The universe is a giant orgasm” (instead of organism). At the end of the student’s essay, the teacher riposted, “Your answer gives new meaning to the Big Bang Theory.”
2) “Involuntary muscles are not as willing as voluntary ones.”
3) “When you breathe, you inspire. When you do not breathe, you expire.”

A young woman who was worried about her habit of biting her fingernails
down to the quick was advised by a friend to take up yoga. She did, and soon

my toe-nails so I bite them instead.”
