Are a Christian of practice myself, there a very little things in yoga which are in conflict with Christianity. Some critics allege that yoga and Christianity cannot coexist, but we know that yoga is not a religion.However, that depends on your opinion.

To be honest, it depends about the EC what you contemplate; and in the truth, in some schools of yoga, one teaches the hindouism, or Buddhism.

Now, if yoga were a religion, which it would be? The principles of yoga are universal.Yamas and Niyamas are similar, in theory, with the Ten commands, but because a Christian have you the right to select and choose what you want of yoga. You also have the right to avoid the sectarian ashrams.The practice as regards yoga, and the meditation, give many Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, and Moslems, a narrower connection with God, but there will be always somebody who feels tried to change their faith.Let us be honest, the people who worry about a sudden change of the faith for the majority are enracin饳 in two camps distinct from thought.1. Somebody who are on the barrier about their own religion and not completely sure where they really hold.2. Serious intolerance of any idea which is new or could have by opening the spirit.Let us stop intolerance now.
