Yoga by another name

When is yoga not yoga?

When it's "Raider Relaxation."

Some parents objected when Massena High School in upstate New York planned to offer students a voluntary yoga program.

Those who opposed it said the exercise class would promote Hinduism in a public school.

So, the name of the program was changed to Raider Relaxation after the school's Red Raiders athletic teams.

While the name is different, the now non-yoga program teaches the same yoga exercises.
