What if it was an Islamic prayer position instead? That's got some stretching involved.
Yeah compared to the Sign of the Cross example you used earlier it does have some stretching. You are a fool if you think a raka'ah is appropriate in a physical education class. Kids do more stretching getting out of bed than what is performed during that.
Does ignorance make it ok? At the end of the day, that particular stretch, the prayer pose at beginning and ending, and every step in between were created to fulfill a physical act of prayer.
Hiding behind ignorance doesn't make standing against it valiant, it just makes you look like an uneducated fool. The prayer pose you recognize is a sign of respect and greeting. The Sun Salutation is just a small part of yoga, you do know what yoga is right? I am not surprised though that you will be so willfully ignorant of another culture. Another day in the land of Gbaji huh?
