Cognitive dissonance would be understandable. I agree with Kelly on yoga—if you have a movement practice and move well, you shouldn’t “need” yoga. I’m fond of his story where he “shows up” all the yoga girls at a class. I think it’s fair to apply MWod principles to your yoga movements. Not all yoga movements are technically sound, but you can do your best to make them. Remember, global flexion/extension of the spine isn’t a bad thing; it’s local flexions that are sketchy.
