Article looks at temple-sponsored yoga

A local-ish article here looks at a Hindu temple's offering of yoga classes. Although central Texas as a whole does not offer a great deal of religious variety, Killeen does because of the presence of Fort Hood. In addition to many Christian churches, there is a Muslim mosque, a Buddhist Temple, and a Messianic Jewish Synagogue, among others.

The newspaper's coverage tends to focus on the Christian groups, which are probably home to more of the population.

I thought the yoga article was interesting in its focus. The short article interviews local teachers and students, but focuses much more on the spiritual aspects than on the health ones.
