Currently there is a lot of debate about the origin and ownership of yoga after a IA organization claimed that every part of yoga was associated with Hinduism and started a campaign to 'Take back Yoga'. Though it might be true that yoga has Indian origins, is Hindusim its owner when infact Hinduism is not a form of religion like Islam or Christianity? Yoga is a age old exercise method practiced by people living in the Indian sub continent. However, today yoga is practiced more outside India and by non-Indians and non-Hindus, than within India itself. The facts about Yogas origins are well known and such movements would only play into the hands of those hardliners on both sides. The spread of yoga is not the spread and acceptance of Hinduism, and it should not be construed as that.
