    1. The Yoga Place I go to is > 1 mile from my house
    2. The Hot Room really loosens you up
    3. I can care less about the creator
    4. I am/was very inflexibility so sticking with the same postures lets me see improvement.

    I am not going to argue its the best yoga. I only being doing it for a couple of weeks. But I like the school I am going to.

    There is definitely much to be said for convenience and suitability when training!

    I've been doing Prasara Yoga for a couple years now (I just started teaching it too) and its excellent for mobility and strength training. There is no spiritual stuff and its a fairly pragmatic training approach. You can find some examples on youtube pretty easily but there isn't any really free resources for it other than youtube that I can think of.

    Simply, yes Yoga is great for everything! I don't focus much time on it and I'v only done one Yoga class. I would like to do it again though!

    there is a dvd put out by a BJJ practitioner that is yoga for fighers, I'd look into that. It skips all the hippie love crap and gets to the meat and potatoes of what you are looking for.
