Religion has nothing to do with Yoga; Patanjali never even talked about God. Stop thinking, start committing. Thanks to PM Narendra Modi that 21 June is declared as International Yoga Day supported by 177 nations at the UNGA.

Yoga is all about exercise, and being religious is all about faith but to do Yoga, it is not at all necessary to be religious. Dhyan(Focus) is one stage in Yoga, and you can always focus on anything which interests you and not necessarily God only. Similarly, Samadhi in Yog is a stage which comes when you elongate your dhyan and reach the deep meditation stage where you have no connection with the outside world and you are connected to your oneself.

Yoga is a life style practice, so religious/God is nowhere related to yoga. If you still have any question please feel free to contact me.

No you do not have to be religious or god fearing to practise yoga. Yoga is spiritual in nature, it helps you balance mind, body and spirit.

Yoga is not related to any religious belief. So it is not necessary to be a religious belief.
