Should 5M Stop Doing Yoga?

Hopped up on Yoga!We're all aware of some of the possible dangers from Yoga (Aggie's illustration), but what about this news:

Norwegian prison stops giving yoga sessions after inmates become aggressive
...Some inmates became more agitated and aggressive, while others developed sleeping problems as a result of the yoga sessions, prison warden Sigbjoern Hagen told newspaper Ringerikes Blad. ... [link]

Maybe it's because they found out that the promised 'yogic flying' is really only hopping on your knees, and hence unlikely to get you over the barbed wire perimeter. That could be frustrating....

Yoga can shake up your chakras in all kinds of wierd and wonderful ways. I don't think yoga is going to make the 5M aggressive. Let's hope it doesn't make her succumb to the charms of the Dude...

As the 5M is about to do the Checkpoint Charlie thing with M, should she drop yoga for a while? Aggression risk aside, it may be wise for her to pick up some new hobbies just to steer clear of her asexual pal. I hear Thai Kick Boxing has become the new yoga for chicks.

Gee, 6A, the photo of Checkpoint Charlie has my nostalgia-meter working overtime. And despite the sweltering heat, after today's frosty exchange between the 5M and M I predict another lengthy Cold War. I think the 5M should continue to partake in yoga. Part of being a good cold warrior is standing your ground, or mat, as the case may be. She shouldn't cede any territory to M.

The former Chair continues to do brilliant work. The 5M's account of her Checkpoint Charlie with M was as expected. The real kicker was that he gave her "disappointing" belated birthday gift. Badly done, M!
