Yoga originated in India. It is a type of stretching exercise that some claim brings physical and mental healing. But some yoga studios claim they don't practice the chanting and practices that are associated with Eastern religions.
Some Christian leaders, have said practicing yoga is incompatible with the teachings of Jesus. The stretching and meditative discipline derived from Eastern religions is not a Christian pathway to God.
One Christian leaders stated, that he objects to "the idea that the body is a vehicle for reaching consciousness with the divine."
What do you think? Are you a Christian and/or do you do yoga?
