The problem with saying/thinking yoga is a special ancient art, a thousands of year old mind body pursuit, (this narrative emerged concurrently with its arrival in the west) is that this line of thinking allows for injectinf and imbuing it with a certain sort of magic. It is dangerously misleading. And it sets up those of us who want to teach more current, relevant material for an uphill battle against widely accepted misconceptions and beliefs.
