We now have Yoga for Christians: Holy Yoga; Body Prayer, Christ-Centered Yoga, New Day Yoga, Trinity Yoga, Yoga Devotion, Grounded in Yoga, Be Still Yoga, and increasing numbers of Christian churches allowing Yoga classes. This is simply trying to infuse Hindu concepts and disciplines with Christian meaning.
Yoga originated from the Hindu culture. The effort to separate yoga from Hinduism must be challenged because it runs counter to the fundamental principles upon which yoga itself is premised. Yoga is all about the Hindu religion.
One more thing, according to Hinduism, man is already divine, and that divinity only needs to be “awakened” through Yoga. No sin – thus no need for a Savior. Man will save himself. In place of God’s Word as the ultimate authority, a new higher authority called “experience” is embraced.
