50 Shades of Yoga

After reading the Times article, A Class for Every Yoga Mood, I am reminded of the wisdom of former president and vampire hunter, Abraham Lincoln: “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.” Call me old fashioned, but it seems to me, that incorporating yoga poses into a step routine doesn’t make the step routing “yoga”; frying an eggplant doesn’t make fried food healthy–it makes fried food out of an eggplant. I don’t doubt the health benefits of a cardio-class inspired by yoga–rather, I merely ask, is calling it “yoga” a bit misleading?
