About the so called international yoga day in Brasov

Because I know a lot of the people from the films posted on the non-official second website of the cult: the blog misa-yoga, on Blogspot, I will be commenting on some of the things being said by the propaganda-machine of MISA.
Firs I will address the problem of the therm “international” yoga day. A brief search on Google show us that the international organizations consider the international yoga day the 31st of January 2010 and respectively the 30th of October. Nowhere can we find the date given by MISA: the 8th of October.

The first thing we can notice is the once again artificially exaggerated number of participants: above 150 people according to the MISA-sources and the Romanian television channels, who just quoted the MISA source without counting.
Well I don't, so I counted (the best I could based on the low quality photos available, but a better and exact number of participants could be determined if one has sufficiently good quality photos from the event) the people in the photographs.
After counting the participants in this way we find 113 and 109 people.
The exaggeration is not as bad as the 40-50000 members instead of 3-4000 like they claim regarding the members or yoga students that MISA has, but still it's an exaggeration and it is being spread by the media and it's helping MISA sustain a pretty picture about themselves, which is not true.
If you want to verify yourself here are some pictures.

So in the first case we have 113 people and in the second 109. If we take into account the good old MISA tradition of coming to only one event and we consider this fluctuation of the number of people maybe then we can come to the total number of 150 people. But even in this case 37-41 people had to come and go from the beginning of the end of the whole event.

And the thought of 150 MISA-yogis is way exaggerated. I personally know people from the images that are not from Brasov, but because of the limited number of close-up images I can not identify more people. I know the following:

Here because of the overlapping of the two images it's not very clear but this is a woman I know and I saw her boyfriend on the film and so I can say with a pretty big certainty that it's her.

Her boyfriend can be seen on the following picture:

And on this one as well. He's the second one from the top. The other man in this picture is also not from Brasov.

As well as the woman in this picture who thinks MISA is equal to God.

All this of course does not mean that they did this deliberately. In Romania (if you are not from Romania and don't know how this works) it was, and sometimes still is a common practice at the time of elections that people were transported by a certain political party to different locations in order to give the impression that the party's sympathizers are more in number than they actually were. This is called electoral tourism. I am not saying that this is necessarily the same here (although in the case of the famous demonstrations in Bucharest, for which you can see advertising on the official MISA site, yogaesoteric.net, people are brought to the demonstration site in an organized matter. I know this because I participated in such a demonstration). In this case I think it's the case of advertisment of the event in other cities than Brasov. All of the people I mentioned above are active in their home town, they are present at the most private events of the yoga course so they were easily accesible and willing participants.

Another familiar face is that of Doina Tănăsoiu. If you don't know who she is, she held two conferences in Costinești (two as far as I know, she is with MISA since a long time ago so it's possible that she held more conferences along the years), last year about literature and love, and this year the conference titled “How can we avoid the Apocalypse, fulfilling in this manner our spiritual meaning” (Cum vom putea evita Apocalipsa, împlinindu-ne astfel menirea spirituală) on the 26th of August, together with her sister Cristina Tănăsoiu.

Which is her (and the most important person at the event, and at Brasov for that manner).

She sould be familiar because of her spectacular performances in several MISA porno movies.
For example in Extasy water

in Kingdom of golden pee

and Secrets of Seduction.

I suspect that she's responsible for informing the people form other cities about the event. She teaches in other cities and there she could advertise the event and convince others that it's incredibly important to go and support the good cause.
As I can deduce from her behavior that I could observe, she and her circle of friends are the heads of inventing this holliday. 

And for those who don't know the famous MISA theaters one of them is in Brasov named Esoteria Artis. They had a couple shows last year at Costinești, they also organize the angel's week in Brasov. Link to their official site Esotera Artis
And when you enter the website (at least this was the case today on the 3rd of March 2010) you are greated by a song from the hit movie Slumdog millionaire that I suspect they don't have the rights necessary to use, but of course that's only a hunch.
The boss of the theater is her:

One of the girls from the theater

and another

The spiral
Just one question about the spiral: Why are they doing it in the wrong direction?
In the last year or so all the so called yang spirals are done with the people facing outside from the center. But as we can see on the pictures and in the film this time they are facing the other way.
Why? Can't they decide on how it should be done? They say that the “method” of the spirals is a direct revelation from God. If this is the case did God change his mind?
I suspect that they are doing it for one of the following reasons:
either to diversify things for the MISA-yogi's, so they don't get bored with the same old same old all the time
or to manipulate them with the frequent changes.

And before someone suspects me of being malevolent or a Freemason spy or a secret agent here are the proofs:
The firs is from this year's Mahashivaratri in Bucharest, the second from a last year's Herculane spiral, and the rest from this years Yin-Yang spiral, which is maybe the best example. Here you can observe the Yin spiral is with people facing outward from the center of the spiral and the Yang spiral is with people facing inwards.

This was also a good opportunity to display the quality of yogis MISA has. As you can observe for yourself most of the people present can't really do the asanas as they should be done.

For example here is the pose called Paschimottanasana by MISA. As you can see in the picture, almost no one does it right.

For comparison this is how the teach it during the courses, or here's a picture is from the Yoga Journal website for the correct execution.

Another example with Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose).

Picture from the Yoga Journal website.

You can see 11 people on this picture and only one person does it correctly. Those are some pretty bad odds.

So there you have it. The quality of MISA.

  1. Hi.
    I Read the above blog and was intersting.The Sanskrit word yoga has many meanings, and is derived from the Sanskrit root "yuj," meaning "to control," "to yoke" or "to unite."[12] Translations include "joining," "uniting," "union," "conjunction," and "means." Outside India, the term yoga is typically associated with Hatha Yoga and its asanas (postures) or as a form of exercise. Someone who practices yoga or follows the yoga philosophy is called a yogi or yogini.But to learn more yoga steps i will recomment you yoga
