Anyone here done yoga or TM before? Further to my post the other day, I believe these disciplines are effective in focusing the mind. Just wondering how much you have to put in before you get anything out.

Yoga is for beginners. To reach true enlightenment you need to do that one where they jump up and down with their legs crossed. I think David Icke practised that one(?) and he became Jesus.

Nah. Go for a jog instead - easier on the brain and less of a risk of breaking wind in front of a room full of strangers.

That seeems a bit harsh. I once went on a Yoga taster weekend in the Brecon Beacons & everyone there was quite normal. Apart from myself, there were a couple of schoolteachers, a psychologist, some social workers and an "aspiring" actor.

If you are considering getting life coaching to become successful and yoga to focus your mind, you are probably looking beyond the capabilities of this forum. People on here are more concerned with maintaining a humdrum high 5-/low 6-figure income and paying off a mortgage on the semi-detatched. You'll frighten them if you aim any higher.

I once worked with a lady who did what she called "head massages", and when she talked about it I had the impression she was hinting I might like to volunteer for one.

But somehow it didn't seem very appealing, mainly because one's head is solid bone. So what is the point? If she had said shoulder massage or, you know, anything else I would have jumped at the chance. She was very good looking too.

Its the pressure points innit. Like acupuncture (of which i had a few sessions when trying to give up smoking and it was, bizarrely, a quite pleasant feeling if you didn't look at the ruddy great needles).

Yours might be but mine is a bony shell with a brain inside.

The point of the head massage is to initiate physical contact in an innocuous form. It's called flirting.

Did she call it "giving head"?

In that case her mother should have told her that with some guys you can never be too obvious. :emb

You didn't take the time to pinpoint just what "head" she may have had in mind then OwlHoot? Might have been a missed opportunity.

Just how does one find out that such opportunities might be available?? Is it in the ads section of "Yoga Monthly" or something?

Instead of just selling the magazines why not ask someone to explain what the pictures in your big issue mean?

You are only jealous because the Big Issue recruiters told you they would not allow you to sell them without a full makeover.
