How Yoga Ruined my Life and why You Should Not Do Yoga!

Yoga will ruin your life just like it ruined mine.

In my opinion, you should not practice yoga.  Instead, why not eat as much as you wish, act on your impulses, have as many partners as you want – all for the sake of having a ball?

I am an expert in having a good time. But, unfortunately, health issues and depression forced me off this path.  Instead, I embarked on a yogic journey.  Consequently, yoga ruined my life.

1) Yoga ruined my life by spoiling my diet


Partly as an elimination diet and partly as a result of yogic propaganda, I found myself eating a plant-based diet. Besides, I now prefer to eat homemade food digested in silence.  As a result, I’ve lost a few pounds. My skin cleared up, and I felt great. However, I am not a fun company and practically dislike most of the foods everyone else eats.

2) Yoga ruined my life by wasting my social life

Typically, I practice yoga before sunrise while the world is still asleep. I gave up drinking. To that end, it is hard to go out when your bedtime is 8:00 PM.

3) Yoga ruined my life by wrecking my limited beliefs


Yoga philosophy opened my mind and transformed my belief system.

If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.

William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell ~~

In conclusion, I would not recommend yoga to anyone who wishes to continue the experiences of indulging and following our endless sensual desires even if it won’t make us happier.

Thanks for reading,

  1. Yoga ruined my life too. Trauma whether mental, physical, emotional or otherwise does not work yoga. If you have any sort of physical blockage or physical illness yoga is not healthy for you. I tried forcing it, I tried minimal poses but it just makes things worse. I suffered 20 years & my body was not meant to do yoga, tai chi, meditation, chanting or any other metaphysical or alternative excercise. All it’s done is exacerbate my illness & condition. I haven’t slept or eaten or been able to breath or move my body in 20 years because of it. It’s all only made me sicker & prevented me from having a life. It ruined my belief system as well & ruined anything I found the smallest pleasure in. Obviously it works for some, but some of us are meant to go our way.

Sometime during the dark night of the soul, none of my old tricks seemed to work. As I watch the storm and the darkness wrapping around my brain and my heart, the scale number went up. As I tossed and turned through the darkness of the starless night, the old nemesis, the ripper, was cackling by my head. I knew the feeling, I’ve been here before. There is a way out, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t reach the door to the other side.
