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.

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

Oh, hang on a second, that yoga.
