Pagan Religion Inundation: Yoga Month -Sept. '08

fyi: September is to be the first ever national "Yoga month". The multi-faceted religion of anti-christ is openly promoting itself worldwide as never before seen (the website proclaims "join the revolution"). Here now is the announcement of a 10-city 'yoga-festival' tour designed to spread this particular spiritual delusion marketed as a 'healthy lifestyle'...complete with free yoga classes for youth, all as part of a 'national awareness campaign'.

They're aiming for national awareness, so be informed. Personal awareness...that the "latter times" marked by an influence of seducing spirits and the doctrines of devils spoken of in 1 Timothy 4:1 have arrived... is a good starting point:

Yoga Month Poised to Make Statement at Democratic National Convention (from website)

Denver, CO - Yoga Month 09.2008, a national awareness campaign to inspire a healthy and informed lifestyle, kicks off the eve before the Democratic National Convention in Denver with a nonpartisan yoga health festival and benefit concert.

In celebration of Yoga Month 09.2008, a 10-City Yoga Health Festival Tour will take place across the US and Canada. The tour will convene August 24-25 on the eve of the Democratic National Convention in Denver and will conclude in Vancouver on October 4. Other festival cities include Miami, New York, Chicago, Austin, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Boston. The tour will feature nationally acclaimed yoga masters, respected health practitioners, green vendors, and conscious-minded musicians Justin Nozuka and Lili Haydn. Russell Simmons, Mariel Hemingway, Sheila E, and other celebrated yogis have embraced Yoga Month and will participate in the 10-City Yoga Health Festival Tour.

In addition to the festival tour, Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCA chapters, and other community based organizations throughout the country will take part in Yoga Month by hosting free yoga classes for underserved youth. These classes will be led by Yoga Month Ambassadors and will focus on the importance of the national awareness campaign, the basics of yoga, nutrition, and simple ways to live a healthy and informed lifestyle at home and at school. Many Yoga Month yoga classes have already been scheduled for implementation in August and September.
re: Isn't yoga harmless. What's wrong with yoga. What if I'm only doing it for the stretching exercise...i.e 'health benefits'?
Yoga means 'union' in the Hindu language. Union with what? Yoga teaches that everything is divine and the goal in doing it is to reach union with your higher self, 'God', or the universe (essentially demonic spirits [serpent power], albeit unbeknownst to the participants). In the practice of Yoga the positions and breathing are to prepare the body for the 'spiritual' changes that arouse (what is seen as) the coiled power (kundalini) at the base of the spine. This power can travel up the spine passing through (what are called) the chakras to the top of your head (so-called 'crown chakra'). The goal is for the kundalini (serpent power) to reach the brain, bringing about the 'mystical' union.
Can We Separate the Exercise From the Philosophy?

excerpted: "There is a common misconception in the West that hatha-yoga, one of about ten forms of Yoga that supposedly leads to self-realization, is merely a neutral form of exercise, a soothing and effective alternative for those who abhor jogging and calisthenics ...

"[However], Hatha-yoga is 'one of the six recognized systems of orthodox Hinduism' and is at its roots religious and mystical. It is also one of the most difficult and potentially dangerous [spiritually] forms of Yoga. "The term hatha is derived from the verb hath, which means 'to oppress.'... What the practice of hatha-yoga is designed to do is suppress the flow of psychic energies through these channels ["symbolic, or psychic, passages on either side of the spinal column"], thereby forcing the 'serpent power' or the kundalini force to rise through the central psychic channel in the spine (the sushumna) and up through the chakras, the supposed psychic centers of human personality and power. Westerners mistakenly believe that one can practice hatha-yoga apart from the philosophical and religious beliefs that undergrid it. This is an absolutely false belief. ...

"You cannot separate the exercises from the philosophy. ... 'The movements themselves become a form of meditation.' The continued practice of the exercises will, whether you ... intend it or not, eventually influence you toward an Eastern/mystical perspective. That is what it is meant to do! ... There is, by definition, no such thing as 'neutral' Yoga" — (Johanna Michaelsen, Like Lambs to the Slaughter, pp. 93-95).
1 Chronicles 10:13 'So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, even against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to inquire of it'
