That's a good point. And on that basis yoga must not be allowed in public school because it indoctrinated a religious/spiritual practice among children. You cannot define yoga based on what a few of us believe it is. May I ask, what credential do we have? Ask a yoga "guru," and majority of them will want you to believe that it is a spiritual practice. Adults with their advanced knowledge about culture may redefine it as it fits to them, but not for children. It's not just the website of the foundation in question, every new-age yoga talks about its religious or spiritual link.

This is not the guideline as considered under US court rulings. The question is not religious *origin*, but religious (or secular) *purpose*.
