Just something that I'm wondering if someone could explain to me. I was listening to a morning radio show on the way to work. One of the co-DJs takes Yoga classes (and she is Christian obviously). A listener wrote in (which they read on the air) asking her how she could call herself a Christian if she practiced Yoga since it's "allowing another faith into her body." She replied that she just found a center that focuses more on the workout than on the belief system (she explained a little more, but I don't have time to go into it).
I was not aware that Yogo would be considered offensive to Christianity. Explain.

Yoga can be a spiritual practice. A simple google search will help you understand the history or yoga. Some Christians believe that using yoga and its meditation practices stray from the teachings of Christianity. Yoga can be practice without the spiritual aspects, or pilates are an alternative. Pilates is similar to yoga, but without the spiritual component. I am not christian, but I do know christians who feel that way about yoga and I can understand why some of them feel like it conflicts with their faith.
