Yoga not religious
September 8, 2002
I don’t have any children in the Aspen schools, but I would like to express my opinion on the yoga issue.
I have been going to Bikram’s yoga classes once a week for the last four years. It strengthens my lower back, and has helped me eliminate my migraine headaches.
I do not think of it as religious at all ? it is an exercise class. I am very involved in my Christian church in Basalt, and I have no qualms about going to my yoga class.
Why don’t they just change the name to “Stretching and Flexibility,” and then there wouldn’t be any controversy? The concerned parents could attend a few classes, and then make an informed decision. I feel the kids would really benefit from it.
