One thought on “Yoga Piracy

  1. Interesting links Matt- all I can say is that I practice Yoga- as a Christian- that does not mean that I remove Yoga from it’s spiritual roots- simply that I choose to respect them and to understand that we do not hold a monoply on spirituality or enlightenment.
    Does this force me to live with questions? Of course it does!
    We close too many doors to constructive dialogue by atempting to Christianise things withour truly understanding their depths!
