Isn’t yoga a religious thing?
Unfortunately, there has been a stigma surrounding yoga for far too long that yoga is a religious act connected to Eastern religions. This is incorrect. Although yoga originated in Northern India as a part of Hinduism, the practice in itself is not religious. The modern incarnation of yoga practiced around the world is based on the original concepts of posture, breathing, meditation and correct living from its Hindu roots but in its essence it is no more a religious practice than any other forms of exercise you’ll find at the gym.
