Is yoga okay?

I use to do yoga and martial arts but stopped after finding out their origins. Is doing yoga or martial arts wrong?

I thought Yoga was just an exercise system, and martial arts a defense system.
If that is what they are taught now as, why would it matter what the origin is?
What is the origin anyway? I have no idea.

Are you getting any leading that it's right?

There is nothing specific in scripture on the subject of type of fighting that is approved or not approved.

It's good stuff, best while in the lotus position.

With all my tummy surgeries there are times that yoga is such a good digestive aid that it's a Kefir.

I've done yoga and it had absolutely no religious connotations. I have a Catholic friend who does it almost every day with a group. She loves it.

Yes, you were right to stop it.

It was quite astonishing to see on the flyer “Christian Yoga! This Thursday night….” I could feel the wheels spinning in my brain. “Christian Yoga”, I thought. Now while Christians can practice yoga, I am not aware of any Christian teachings about yoga. Yoga is not a Judeo/Christian word! It is not a part of the Roman Catholic teachings and certainly not a part of protestant teachings. It is not found within the King James Version of the bible. It is a Hindu word, or more correctly a Sanskrit word from the Vedic civilization. So how did we get “Christian Yoga”?

From this I could conclude that “Christian Yoga” could only indicate one of two possibilities:

1) Christianity is threatened by yoga and is attempting to take over this system that is expanding and successfully teaching spirituality to the masses.

2) Christianity is subconsciously attempting to return to the spiritual roots of civilization—the Vedic civilization.
