Yes, it’s stretching and isometric exercise, followed by relaxation and visualizing a peaceful scene, a waterfall or a sunrise.

    Yoga isn’t Hindu anyway, and probably 95% of the yoga done in the states is completely secular.

    Yes, because it is very good for your body. The first time I practiced yoga, it wasn’t spiritually, and it felt AMAZING afterwords.

    I do need to add however that yoga isn’t mutually exclusive to Hinduism, so if you’re a Christian, or whatever, do not feel it is blasphemy to practice this very relaxing technique.

    Many gyms here have “religion-free” yoga. One of the christian gyms (yes we have christian gyms) has christian yoga (just one more thing they felt like “borrowing”.

    Yoga postures and breathing exercises can be “done”, Yoga itself cannot. since it’s not a thing but a state of being.

    Yes, you can without a doubt. Yoga is very good for the body and mind. It stretches and strengthens the body and relaxes the mind.
