I have been doing yoga stretching exercises for several years which seems to be the only thing that helps the back pain and neck problems that I have had for 18 years. I watched part of Women of Grace today which focused on the fact that yoga is incompatible with Catholicism. I understand that yoga is a spiritual practice but always thought since I only did the stretching part and avoided the things that had to do with meditation, chanting, mudras and anything I felt was spiritual that it was ok. I do yoga at home with cds and don't attend classes. The lady who teaches in the cd is a dancer who doesn't go into all the spiritual exercises, just the poses. According to the show today (which I am sorry to say I only caught the end of), I should avoid anything to do with yoga. Is this true? Am I sinning by doing yoga stretching exercises? And if so, can anyone recommend a stretching program that is compatible with Catholicism and will help with my pain and flexablilty?
