I practise yoga, the Iyengar method, very hard and demanding, but I do not know if it is my way. But anyway, it is very clear to me that the body is the base of the spiritual progress, and I believe that Zen do not pay enough attention to this aspect. Do you believe, yourself, that Zen can guarantee a healthy body, so that it does not become an obstacle to our spiritual search? Master Deshimaru said that Zen is something higher than yoga, although this answer seems to me a little ambiguous, I do not know what he meant with that. what do you think of yoga? I suppose you will find that Zen is better. Their purposes are the same, but they are such different roads...
