No, yoga is not Jewish, it is Hindu in origin.

The Times chronicles a burgeoning controversy over the “ownership” of the practices of yoga in America.

We did yoga regularly in the early 1990s at the Northwest Tennis Club in Minneapolis Minnesota. Our teacher was Bonnie West, an American woman from St. Paul with a wicked sense of humor and with no Hindu agenda at all. Her yoga classes provided wonderful exercise and discipline for the body and mind.
