This tag combo is what iD assigns for yoga studios, so it's pretty
pervasive. I agree that it's not perfect. I wouldn't mind seeing an
amenity=yoga tag or somesuch that could cover the whole spectrum of
possibilities, from fitness training to spiritual practice, with
optional subtags to nail down the details. It's outside of my sphere but
I imagine there are yogis and yoginis in the OSM world who'll take up
this cause eventually.
