      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.
