Yoga, Spirituality & Religion

Ep 25: This episode was inspired by a conversation I had with someone who had read an article about the dangers of Christians doing yoga and how they believe yoga to be a dark spirituality. What's wrong with yoga, mindfulness, and meditation? Do you have to be of a certain religion - or not of a certain religion - to practice yoga? I share my thoughts on this while trying to keep an open mind and view it from different perspectives. Full transcript of episode is available for download on the episode webpage.
