    Rune "yoga" is probably a misnomer. However, there is some evidence that leads s to believe that Runic postures were used. Take, for instance, the Golden Horn of Gallehus which show people posing in Runic postures:

    Possible, but I'm still a non-believer!

    If I show you some pictures of my cats ... they do Rune Yoga too!

    I wouldn't know. I don't see, though, how it would dishonor the runes to find new manifestations of their existence/power/substance, or how it would dishonor our ancestors to expand upon their early knowledge. Maybe they didn't exercise. Maybe they never connected the runes to body postures. But along the way apparently someone did, and it seems to me that at this point, the main question should be "has someone learned a valid new application for the ancient wisdom?", rather than "was this being done a thousand years ago?".

He came out to my home for four or five days and taught me the Danubians, a system of runic excerises. Greg is also a teacher of Klima a self defense system (not the German word for Climate). He learned this via the SS man. Greg has written a book on the Danubians. I keep pushing him to get this published but we all have our own priorities.

    I also was in correspondence for a brief time with Edred Thorsson, which has been mentioned and who wrote Rune Might Secret Practices of the German Rune Magicians. I thought it was a valuable book and I got quite a bit of information from it. "Thorsson" is a guy living in Atlanta, Georgia. He has a Ph.D. in German Language. Greg Rowe reports to me, however, that "Thorsson's real name is Stephen Flowers and he belongs to a prominent Jewish family in Atlanta. That took my breath away.
    I realise that this is an old post and Solar Wolff is no longer active on this forum but this accusation is absolute crap. There is no evidence whatsoever to support the notion that Edred is Jewish. It is a pity that he wasn't challenged more strongly over this remark.

    I haven't read this whole thread but I must point out that the word "yoga" does not only mean physical yoga which we in the western world may assume is what "yoga" means.

    There are many yogas in India ... some are "thinking yogas" ... some are religious ... one is physical which in the west we associate with classes mostly women in wonderfully tight stretchy pants go to hehe.

    But anyway .... you should look up what "Yoga" means fully .... it's related to "Yoke" as in what two oxen are paired with which possibly relates to the saying of Jesus "My Yoke (yoga) is easy, and my burden is light) ~ a form of Bhakti Yoga - attach to an avatar of the divine.


    Just wanted to point that out.


    In some way, the myth of Odin hanging from Yggdrasil is a kind of 'yoking' or union to the divine source ...

    Any activity or substance or philosophy which joins your mind onto a higher realm of thought may be considered a kind of "Yoga".


    If anyone here simply sees the word "yoga" and thinks of classes of people doing physical stretches ......... they are lacking in full understanding and do not know the meaning of the word "yoga".
