In the response below, I'm treating 'people' as the singular counterpart of
the plural 'peoples'.
The whole idea of blocking yoga for religious or cultural reasons seems really
bizarre to me. I seldom think of yoga as having religious roots, even though
it does. I think it's become almost completely secular as it's practiced in
most places in the US. What do you think?
I say: The only people with a good reason to avoid European or American yoga
practice is the Hindus. That's because it includes religious elements when
practiced by Hindus, which elements would vanish if they practiced secular
yoga instead of Hindu yoga.
