Is it possible for there to be such a thing as “Christian” Yoga? In some churches the answer would be yes. For some Christians they do not see the harm in doing Yoga.

Consider seriously the Merriam-Webster definition of yoga: “A Hindu theistic philosophy teaching the suppression of all activity of body, mind, and will in order that the self may realize its distinction from them and attain liberation.”

With that definition in mind, I ask that you watch this short video where Dr. John MacArthur addresses whether or not it is proper for Christians to participate in Yoga.

I think the answer is pretty clear… given the definition of what yoga is and taking into consideration what Dr. MacArthur says… Christians should refrain from yoga.
