    There are yoga competitions. Say what?
    In the West, most of its practitioners are wealthy Caucasians who ignore its rejection of materialism.

    Its practice, development, and history are intertwined with Buddhism, Hinduism, the Sanskrit language, and the history of India in a fascinating and profound way.
