The answer is what Jennifer Sedlock was forced to do—uncover and expose the truth no matter the cost!

India banned yoga in their schools. Having traveled to India, the Hindu people cannot comprehend why Americans think yoga is just exercise. I am deeply concerned that yoga is being taught in our public schools. Yoga Crisis addresses why students should not be led to pray and meditate in a yoga format. — Pastor Bob Botsford, Horizon Christian Fellowship, Rancho Santa Fe, California
