Are hatha yogis irresponsible with their use of the broad, and general term yoga? Are we doing the subject harm and injustice by not being more specific in our communication? Could it not be considered by the same token, like calling any assembling of people, Religion?

The word yoga, as most of us know, simply means to yoke. To Connect together. And in the context of a yoga practice, we can sometimes be yoking or un-yoking.

There has been so much controversey surrounding hatha yoga lately, it seems almost unfair to those who practice any of the other 7 common kinds of yoga. Should we leave this term behind as a community or subculture and being using the word hatha explicity?
