Hi Jim, Yoga has nothing to do with Hinduism. It is separate from the philosophies of that faith, although many Hindus practice yoga. Please look at the Yoga Sutras, written around 200 BC, the oldest writings on yoga. There you will see that the sutras encourage people to believe in whatever works for them, as long as they practice, and that is the key, practice, the eight fold path of yoga, which includes postures, breathing, meditation, and a strict moral path. I've taught yoga for thirty years and have had people of every, and no, faith in classes, and yoga works the same for all of them.
