Obama White House Embraces Yoga Amid Conservative Contortions Chidanand Rajghatta Apr 1, 2013, It is not the first time that Obama's residence has hosted a yoga garden for Easter, but this year's event is significant because of an ongoing lawsuit in California challenging the teaching of yoga in schools.

Aren’t we supposed to separate church and state?
Don’t let the Black Churches hear you.
Smarter than the average Barry....
Booboo says the picnic baskets are extra...
I’ve done yoga and I’m not Hindu. I took a lot of ballet but never grew swan feathers, either. It’s exercise. But I prefer Pilates
WTF is a “yoga garden”???
Not that Christ has Risen.
