30 Bananas a Day!

After a conversation on another forum I was drawn to ask this question.

 

From my limited understanding of yoga, it deals with connecting to your inner essence and tapping into a universal oneness but it doesn't have a defined set of parameters or deities making it less of a complete religious system and more of a spiritual template that one builds upon regardless of their religious beliefs; or lack there of. The link below describes it more in the light in which I see it.

I know a lot of people on this site practice yoga so I would love to hear a few of you comment on this and I would love to know what religion you practice and how it coincides with Yoga principles and practices. I Yoga your complete spiritual system, is it completely separate or does it enhance what ever religious beliefs you hold?

I haven't read this but the title caught my attention after reading the responses on this post.

Not being a spiritual person at all, I find it difficult to find any sort of motives to do yoga outside of the bodily benefits that it provides.  I am generally a pretty close minded person about spirituality because just like god and religion, it can't be proved, observed, felt or even perceived so I find myself unable to place any faith in something that for all intensive purpose does not exist.  No one has been able to ever show me otherwise. So from
That perspective, yoga doesn't come into conflict with religion at all.
