No Fooling

You have to be on your guard when reading the news on April 1st. So, I did a bit of back-checking and apparently this is a real thing!

Alabama has banned yoga by law – for the past 28 years. The reason seems to be a real fear that yoga turns ordinary American citizens into Hindus. I don’t think that would be such a bad thing, if it were plausible.

It makes the news because some enlightened folk have seen the benefit of practicing asanas and seemed to have avoided turning Hindu purely by chance. Like the Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid vaccine, the reported risk of side-affects have probably been over-emphasised. In reality, there is only a 1 in 2,500,000 chance of spontaneously turning Hindu whilst practicing Adho Mukha Shvanasana over any ten year period.

namaste.
