Yoga is, of course, based on religion, and these schools changing the names of things to "avoid" it being religious....well, that's simply dishonest.
If they don't want to allow prayer in schools (well, Christian prayer, as some allow Muslim students prayer time), then they cannot be teaching yoga.
One one hand, you have students wanting to pray, on their own, and on the other, you have teachers instructing kids in a religious practice. That
they think they can get away with this shows just how bad things have become.
It isn't really about keeping religion out of the schools; it's about keeping Christianity out, and letting other beliefs in.
I find it appalling how many people want to pretend there is no religious element to this, simply because it isn't Christian, and because Christian
parents find it offensive. Well, next time you feel like complaining about a Christmas play, keep your current comments in mind. If you want to
allow yoga, you can't whine about kids singing carols, either.
