Hindu anger at yoga studios

American Hindu groups not comfortable with de-linking of yoga from religion.

    Devout Hindus in the US state of California are unhappy with the way American popular culture has commercialised their religion.

    They say the modern yoga movement has forgotten its deeper identity as a spiritual ritual, and that many practitioners and yoga studios are "actively de-linking" yoga from Hinduism.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds reports from Berkeley, California.
