Remove the Ashtanga yoga program from EUSD

267 Signatures Goal: 200

We, EUSD parents and concerned citizens in the district, oppose the implementation of the Ashtanga yoga program in our public schools, funded by the Jois Foundation’s grant. We urge the EUSD Board of Trustees to immediately suspend Ashtanga yoga from the regular school day and restore the prior physical education program (please list your zip code and whether you are an EUSD parent or citizen in the comments section below).

    Yoga is a very spiritual practice to the core. I used to teach yoga. I attained teacher certification in India before experiencing a traumatic spiritual experience caused in part by yoga practice. There is much behind the practice. It is not stretching and toning. I am currently working on a website to raise awareness behind the spiritual reality and dangers. I am really encouraged to have just discovered this website and petition. Yoga does not belong in schools. It has its own religious text called the Yoga Sutras. It is a religion. Feel free to contact me at the email address above with questions or comments.
