IMHO all forms of yogic practices ought to be kept at a distance by Orthodox, if for no other reason than they are a diversion and distraction from all of the disciplines that we have already. I mean, why practice yoga when we have prostrations, the Jesus Prayer, fasting, vigils, standing in Church for long periods, etc.? I have noticed that if am am standing on a hard floor in Costco for an hour I get back pain, but usually just the opposite if I am standing in Church for a couple of hours -- my back loosens up. So there you are! On the other hand we know that Jesus was an expert practitioner of Tai Chi, since he was able to pass through a hostile crowd to the other side...
