Yoga Class Suspended on Grounds of Cultural Appropriation

To the list of things totalitarian moonbat screwballs want to take away from us in the name of their nauseating ideology we can now add yoga:

A free yoga class has been suspended [because] student leaders at a Canadian university are concerned the practice of it could be seen as ‘cultural appropriation’.

Jennifer Scharf, who has been offering the weekly yoga class at the University of Ottawa campus for seven years, said she was notified in September that the program was being ended.

In an email from the Center for Students with Disabilities, staff wrote that while yoga is ‘accessible and great for students’, there are ‘cultural issues of implication involved in the practice’, the Ottawa Sun reported.

‘I’m not pretending to be some enlightened yogi master, and the point [of the program] isn’t to educate people on the finer points of the ancient yogi scripture,’ she told the Ottawa Sun.

‘The point is to get people to have higher physical awareness for their own physical health and enjoyment.’

It used to be okay for white people to practice yoga. But like saying the word “Chinaman” or naming a football team the “Redskins,” liberals have decided that now it is racist.

The center’s staff said that yoga has been under ‘a lot of controversy lately’ as a result of how it is being practiced and which cultures those practices are ‘being taken from,’ according to the Ottawa Sun.

Staff from the center also expressed that many of those cultures ‘experienced oppression, cultural genocide and Diasporas due to colonialism and western supremacy’.

Please make it stop.

Scharf … told the Ottawa Sun that the complaint that caused the program to come to an end came from a ‘social justice warrior’ with ‘fainting heart ideologies’ in search of a controversial issue that would attract public attention.

Scharf claimed people are just searching for a reason to be offended by anything they can find…

Now where would she get that idea?

No more yoga could mean no more yoga pants. Some people aren’t going to like that. Progs might get some resistance for a change.

Racist cultural appropriators.

    I see. People of European descent aren’t allowed to practice their own culture, because that is oppressive (though, at the same time, we have no culture). We can’t defend this culture (that we may or may not have), and must defer to everyone else. Yet we cannot participate in the culture of anyone else, or indeed incorporate good ideas or practices from other cultures into our daily lives.

    Well, now we know the rules.

    A strange game.

    The only winning move is not to play.

    How about a nice game of chess?

    Throwing them off campus? Amazing, since yoga is anti-Christian. Anyone who knows anything about yoga…even the origin of it’s name…understands it is not an exercise routine, but a spiritual practice. The postures are akin to yantras, physical manifestations of mantras, designed to call upon a specific deity. The pose makes your body into something like an antenna as your receive the power from whatever spirit it is your attempting to contact. They don’t mention that at the local yoga parlor, do they?

    Given that fact, I’m sure the University of Ottawa will immediately reverse themselves and welcome the class back with open arms.

    How about Dojo’s? Seems like they are all all appropriating some culture or other.

    On most operations, our operators will wear a shemaugh or keffiyeh. They are very effective at cooling in summer and warming in winter plus their ability to keep blowing sand or dust out of your shirt. Nothing like a little in your face cultural appropriation.

    Better to go with the Dillon M134D Aero. Lots of guntrucks had the M2 .50BMG and were ambushed in Iraq and Afghanistan. When those vehicles showed up with the M134D, the fight was over. Haji ran like a dragon had appeared and in many ways one had.

    Of course, if you want the best of both worlds, there is the GAU 18/B though you may want to start saving for ammo.
