Is yoga a religion?
No. Yoga is a philosophy that originated in India 5,000 years ago, and was compiled into the Yoga Sutras in 600 BC by the father of classical yoga, Patanjali. These texts still provide a framework for spiritual exploration and mastery over the physical and mental body. Yoga sometimes interweaves other philosophies such as Hinduism or Buddhism, although it is not necessary to study those paths in order to practise or study yoga. You do not need to surrender your own religious beliefs to practise yoga. In fact, many people find that yoga helps them find greater depth in their chosen faith.
