"Yoga"? Seriously? I suspect the author has just stumbled onto Waldorf education, known to many as a "cult-like" educational system that covertly promotes a quazi-religious and racist philosophy to students and parents. The whole purpose of Waldorf schools is to indoctrinate people, especially children, into Anthroposophy. When he says "yoga", does the author mean "Eurythmy" - the "physical embodiment of Anthroposophy" according to Waldorf's founder - Rudolf Steiner? Waldorf claims not to "teach" Anthroposophy to students (directly), however, Anthroposophy guides everything the teacher does, how he/she evaluates children - according to their temperament, head size, body shape, (and shhhh.... skin color). They don't discriminate against children of color when enrolling them - but they *know* those children have a lot further to come... spiritually. Waldorf schools are famous for many things, among them bullying, a lack of academics in the curriculum, problematic teachers (they only need Waldorf teacher training which is intensive Anthroposophy training) - but most important, they're famous for lying about the role of Anthroposophy in their schools. Liars and children is a bad combination. Read about Waldorf schools at the Quackometer blog, the Waldorf Critics website, Waldorf Watch, or just search the web for Waldorf criticism. I've personally collected hundreds of pages of complaints by parents and students on my blog and Facebook page "The Waldorf Review" and "Waldorf Awareness" blog. All that glitters is not gold... and this author obviously fell for the glitter, like many parents do. Does the author know why they don't like TV for children? It has nothing to do with science and everything to do with "Ahriman" - a demon who invades mechanical things and pushes people to be intellectual. Especially in children, Ahrimanic influences are bad - according to Anthroposophy. Pete Karaiskos - former Waldorf parent - now Waldorf Whistle-blower
