Bible verses about yoga
The goal of yoga is to be one with the universe. In Scripture you will not find anything to justify the practice of yoga. You can try to justify your sins but remember God is not mocked. You are the creation, you can’t be one with the Creator. Scripture never says to clear your minds, but it says to meditate on the Word of God.
If you meditate on the Word you will clearly see yoga is evil and there is no way to justify it. Many professing Christians are being deceived by Satan. Do not worship God how the pagans do.

3. Ephesians 6:11-14 Wear the full armor of God. Wear God’s armor so that you can fight against the devil’s clever tricks. Our fight is not against people on earth.

That is why you need to get God’s full armor. Then on the day of evil, you will be able to stand strong. And when you have finished the whole fight, you will still be standing. So stand strong with the belt of truth tied around your waist, and on your chest wear the protection of right living.
