Should yoga be taught in Catholic schools?

Yoga is now on the curriculum in our Catholic schools, as a form of relaxation. I’ve researched info on yoga and it’s a Hindu exercise and it should not be done by Christians. Please help me to explain this to the Director of education.
Marie Jeanne.

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