In the latest study, researchers reviewed 17 existing studies that looked at the energy and intensity involved in practicing hatha yoga. The scientists found that with the exception of a few individual poses, hatha yoga is a lighter-intensity physical activity.

We scoff to think that a quiet walk in Nature, a leisurely bike ride or a gentle yoga class could keep us healthy and fit. Ayurveda would disagree.

Keep in mind that absolutely no studies have been done on the toxicity of weedkiller when injected into children. The US Environmental Protection Agency analyzed Monsanto’s self-serving safety studies on the potential toxicity when glyphosate is ingested, but not when it is injected. EPA documents studying how the body metabolizes glyphosate (that is, how it moves through the body) found that glyphosate shows up in bone marrow thirty minutes after injection.
Forcing students to sit for such long periods wastes the time of everyone involved.
