Dear Mr. Gator,

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

I would like to make it clear once and for all.
I am NOT blaming YOGA for the problems that I
had. All I am asking is, Could I be doing the exercises WRONG ?

I have a request to all those teachers who
want to accuse me of blaming yoga for my problems.
Please read the post carefully before jumping to conclusion
and passing any comments.
I have clearly asked in my post if I could be doing the exercises wrong.
Also, I have said that I don't want to miss out on the benefits
of pranayama and yoga which means I do believe in it's benefits.

Fat is stored in the stomach for many reasons. This could be genetic or it could be indigestion. When food isn't chewed or digested properly, it can cause the lower abdominal area to protrude outwards.

If you want, you can blame it on yoga. For that reason Kitty might want to try the Atkins diet or "heart attack diet," there was scant scientific evidence to back up the claims but 20 million people jumped on the band wagon.

Dr. Robert Atkins, the proponent of the low-carbohydrate diet, died of a heart attack.

Don't practice yoga though - it makes too much sense and it might might help you with your ailments.
