Today the Prime Minster, David Hariom, announced the formation of a new government body for the regulation of yoga postures in the UK. The new body, called the Ministry of Asanas, will be, “bending over backwards to ensure increased flexibility and happiness will become main-stream within the next 12 months.”

The Ministry will also introduce guidelines on correct alignment, reaching eternal happiness and daily sadhana. On Monday, the UK Shadow Secretary, Ardho Mukswanasana said, “Only postures with a high GHI (Global Happiness Index) would be recommended for daily use by the Ministry of Asanas.”
Speculation as to the exact criteria for high GHI poses has been strongly debated amongst the Yogic Elders for several thousands of years; however, the Swamis are awaiting extra input from the Akasha before publishing their conclusions.
A document leaked from the Ministry this week indicates that a great deal of time and resources has already been ploughed into researching several ‘Inverted Inversions’ including the Inverted Dog, Inverted Shoulder Stand and Inverted Cobra. Sources concur that these poses are likely to rate very highly on the GHI scale, however official documentation is yet to be revealed.
