Yoga in Schools Is Dangerous?

I have never heard this one before: Yoga is dangerous - to your mind.

Ok, so Yoga is a practice that originated in Eastern religion and philosophy. And to be fully involved in the yoga tradition is to do so much more than the asanas that are the basis for 99% of American yoga practice. But how can it be dangerous? What is is about yoga that can taint a poor child's mind to, uhm, do bad things? Ruin the world?

What's interesting, is that this person who used to be so involved with yoga, somehow can't come up with a single actual reason that yoga is dangerous. So, what exactly is he complaining about?

What am I missing? Please help me understand what the problem is here.
