I've got a friend who wants to learn yoga, and it got me thinking. Is yoga ok for Christians to do? I mean, I look at it as a form of exercise, but I know how it originated from Hinduism and Buddhism. So does it have too many pagan aspects? Or can it be just a form of exercise and nothing more?

I think it is good as long as you use it for exercise and not a meditative spiritual act.
Too many years trying not to rock the boat
I gotta quote, "I don't wanna rock the boat, I wanna sink it"

Yoga- a Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, a part of which, including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures, is widely practiced for health and relaxation.


I know that there may be "health benefits" linked with yoga, but God says, "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" 2 Corinthians 6:14

Idk if there's anything else that I can say about that...

I think yoga is fine. Your just exercising, its fine as long as your just doing yoga, most of the yoga that is done today is just stretching and what not.

I think it is pagan. I wouldn't do it.

Honestly, I just think of it as being good for your body- exercise. I mean, you could even use it as a time to meditate with God in the mornings. Just my opinion. :)

My mom does yoga, and she says as long as you use it for the sole sake of exercise and stretching, not for the other aspects of it, it is ok. However, I have a teacher who crams it down our throats that yoga is bad and Satanic and that kind of stuff.


Personal opinion, yoga isn't bad unless you choose to make it that way.
