Excerpted from this article:
While some critics of Yoga say that it is not compatible with
Christianity, there is already tremendous diversity of opinions and
practices within the Christian religion, which serves a broad variety
of people. The World Christian Encyclopedia (pub. 2001) is quoted as
estimating that there are over 28,000 Christian denominations (later
updated to 33,830 and 39,000 according to different sources). The
World Christian Database says that over 9,000 denominations are
represented in its database (2004). Another Christian resource on
Internet says that the number of Christian denominations has
increased to over 35,500 from approximately 1900 denominations that
existed a hundred years ago.
If there is room for tens of thousands of denominations within
Christianity, surely there is plenty of room for Yoga to be practiced
by its adherents who choose to do so.
