    Rinpoche, thank you for your very clear and helpful answer to my question about prostrations (BA2Q4). I have an additional question. I have practiced hatha yoga for many years and in some ways this links in my mind with doing prostrations. In the west hatha yoga is often taught as a physical rather than spiritual discipline. Would it be appropriate at the beginning of a hatha yoga class to silently say the refuge prayer, and at the end of the class to silently say the dedication, to make the yoga class more clearly part of my dharma practice, also trying to be mindful during the class (focus on the asanas, not be too distracted in my mind)?
    thank you for sustaining the shedra teachings during your travels – it is much appreciated.
