is practicing yoga as an exercise opening oneself to Satan?

I read this article from a reputable Catholic blog: “Downward Facing: the Dark Side of Yoga”
This article, as I read it, labels Hinduism alongside Satanic worship as dangerous, when we know the Church acknowledges that all religions have some truth in them. I have practiced yoga off and on (not in the presence of an idol) for 8 years and find this article very disturbing. I would like to explain the happenings in the article as coincidental. Thanks.

The following links should explain the Church’s teaching on yoga. If you have any further questions, please contact Catholic Answers directly.
