Grave injustice to yoga

The ongoing controversy over yoga is the wrong one. The right controversy would be over the propriety of passing off any free-hand exercise and bodily contortions as yoga.
Muslim bodies have condemned the move to popularise yoga, seeing in it a nefarious attempt to impose Hindu values and rituals on Muslims and other minorities. Considering the views of some proponents of yoga (viz Yogi Adityanath, who would consign all opponents of yoga to the bottom of the sea, this is not an unreasonable view. But this fear of yoga undermining non-Hindu spirituality is completely misplaced. It can be addressed by making it absolutely clear that performance of yoga is entirely voluntary and by replacing some chants used, for example, in suryanamaskaar, with unvoiced exhalation.
Yoga is wholesome exercise that is good for both the mind and the body and there is no need to encumber yoga with any religious claptrap. However, yoga is what it is because it follows a defined grammar. Many impostors claim to be yoga gurus and even have huge followings. They do contortions that impress the ignorant and perform some heavy breathing, calling it praanaayaam. Such charlatans do major disservice to yoga.
Yoga, said BKS Iyengar, who more than deserved his Padma Vibhushan, is art, science and philosophy. According to Iyengar, the purpose of hatayoga, the complex asanas that condition the body, is to prepare the body for praanaayaam. Those ‘gurus’ who launch into praanaayaam straightaway while initiating a novice into yoga, at the least, mislead people.
What sets yoga apart from mere calisthenics is the stress it lays on precise muscle alignments and breathing. The stretching/tightening/relaxation of particular muscle groups while attaining a particular posture makes a big difference to the effect of that posture. Those who are ignorant of the precise alignments required for each posture merely perform calisthenics and not yoga. They are incapable of getting the benefits of doing yoga.
This is not all. Some of yoga’s postures, if not done right, can cause damage as well.
Yoga’s strength is that it has deciphered the interconnectedness of the body. The effect tightening the quadriceps has on the abdominal muscles and the opening up of the chest achieved by turning the palms upwards as your arms are outstretched on either side are just elementary examples of the interconnectedness of different parts of the body that yoga fully explores and exploits.
Guided by an expert, yoga can turn therapeutic. It can stimulate the endocrine system, regulate the production of hormones, fight depression and repair damaged neurons. But this is true only of true yoga, not of the garden variety of calisthenics that will be passed off as mass yoga on World Yoga Day.
Starting from Patanjali who compiled the Yoga Sutras, down thorugh the ages to BKS Iyengar, every serious practitioner of yoga would be aghast at the thought of yoga as a means of entering some book of records. The whole yoga day tamasha makes a travesty of yoga. Further, it makes a hash of taking forward what is sound and robust in India’s tradition.
If the government is serious about yoga, it should arrange for schools of yoga to codify their practice and set standards that are monitored by an appropriate body, to separate mere contortionists and impostors from yoga practitioners. It would make yoga classes affordable for all. In the absence of such initiatives, what a world yoga day would achieve is to boost the sales of some yoga-tagged merchandise — yoga pants, anyone? — without doing much for yoga, much as mother’s day or father’s day dent parental finances without noticeable enhancement of the filial bond.
