Is Yoga for Catholics?


#1

I enjoy going to yoga and have been going regularly for 15 plus years. Recently, I was told that yoga is frowned upon by the Church. I don't engage in any of the spiritual aspect, for me it's strictly a stretch and low impact work out. . Please advise as to if and under what conditions I can continue to attend yoga.

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