Non-fluffy flexibility-promoting exercise classes in Philadelphia?

Where can I get the body workout without the soul workout - in Philadelphia? I'd like to find an exercise class that focuses on flexibility and reducing tension - without the spiritual stuff usually abundant in yoga classes. [more inside]

What is the "Inner Life Intensive" workshop like at Kripalu Yoga Center?

Has anyone ever taken the "Inner Quest Intensive" 3-day course at Kripalu Yoga Center in Lenox, MA? I'm thinking about doing it and would like to hear what others' experiences were like. Specifically, what did you actually do during the time there -- how were the days structured, what kinds of practices did you experience? [more inside]

Cosmic clich├ęs - is that all they are?

Every time my (Sikh) yoga teacher talks of enlightenment this and infinite wisdom that and cosmic love the other (ie often), I have to turn a mental blind eye because I don't know what these things are and they kinda defy definition and as such I don't think I ever will know. And part of me feels alienated by this - here is this teacher and this class; the teacher claims to know of these mystical things, and the class (I'm guessing) is divided into (a) those who pretend to also know of these things, and (b) those who know they don't but wish they did. From a distance this seems absurd. Am I missing something, (perhaps something awesome)?

Dahn We Now Our Creepy Yoga?

A new yoga center has opened up in my neighborhood called Dahn Yoga. I went in yesterday to check out the schedule and see what they had to offer. I left with a little bit of a Scientology, kind of creepy new-agey feeling. I've done yoga for years, love me some good Buddhism, etc, but if someone starts to talk to me about altering my brain and altering my chakras in more than a metaphorical way, I'm not thinking it's for me. Anyone had any experience with Dahn Yoga or "brain respiration"? Here are the links I found: * Brain Respiration * Dahn Yoga I'm hoping it's not creepy, because it's a nice space, and the location and schedule are convenient.
