Just say OM

Have you heard about these Southern California parents who are considering suing their school because...wait for it...the children are getting FREE yoga lessons!!

Oh the humanity!

According to the Chronicle, these parents believe the tax-payer funded yoga classes are indoctrinating their children into Hinduism and is thus unconstitutional.

These parents are ridiculous.

Yoga is no more indoctrinating these children into Hinduism as eating sushi is turning me Japanese. The benefits these children are likely gaining from learning to still themselves, breathe and stretch surely outweigh any possibility that they may want to learn more about the Hindu religion.

I think these parents should embrace the lessons learned from this alternative form of exercise, which hopefully will stay with these kids throughout their lives.

And maybe they can teach their parents to just take a deep breath and relax.
