Judge California school district sued over yoga program

A lawsuit has been filed against a San Diego-area school district for its student yoga curriculum, claiming the exercise classes are "inherently and pervasively religious."

Yup, this turned out to be exactly what I thought it would be: conservatives are afraid of the yoga.

Yoga is inherently religious, but a class could be taught with just the yoga poses which does not contain any religion.

Actually they are right. Yoga makes people flexible and the true religion of some conservatives is unassailable rigidity.

They should stick to just teaching stretching, moving, breathing.

Oh, hang on a second, that yoga.
