Re: the data: yoga equivalent to exercise

.......continuing @ Minxie. It takes me so long to type on this iPad I had to recharge my battery....

I detect a definite inference that I'm somehow dismissing the value of yoga practice (assuming that it is more poor inference drawing [more]

Re: the data: yoga equivalent to exercise

@ Minxie (can't reproduce your comments with eases as I'm away from my regular computer)....

My comment re: risk factors for diabetes came from the review and meta analysis in the link in the OP in this thread, not my opinion......so, per [more]

Re: the data: yoga equivalent to exercise

For sure, no one could intelligently argue that some exercise isn't better than none at all......to the extent that there's the whiff of a. Straw Man in the very statement.

Re: the data: yoga equivalent to exercise

Re: the data: yoga equivalent to exercise

Ah... I see that it didn't. Very rarely do these promotional pieces tell a sufficiently comprehensive story.

Re: the data: yoga equivalent to exercise

Re: Exercise works?

I guess I'm a bit out of the loop here.

Who eats a loada rice.....and who commented on it.

Boy, it gets tough when you don't bother to read posts......as opposed to when you "ignore" them

Re: Exercise works?

There's absolutely nothing preventing the focus of this board being the impact of NUTRITION on health and wellbeing......including the limitations of many of the nutritional strategies that've commonly discussed. However, over the years, topics of [more]

Re: Exercise works?

Vee conveniently overlooks the fact that the reason I don't exercise more or harder is that my medical conditions make it very difficult
