In my recent post “What is the Catholic Position on Yoga?” I failed to make a couple of distinctions that have led to some confusion among my readers. I apologize for this confusion and want to offer a couple clarifications here.
First of all, my title was not strictly accurate. While some of my initial comments certainly represent Catholic teaching, later comments reflected my considered opinion as a theologian, but not the official teaching or discipline of the Church. While I believe my phrasing and language made this clear, the title of the piece and my own title as Archdiocesan Theologian may have contributed to lack of clarity on that point.
