Speaking as a runner, yoga is something that runners do specifically for
strength and flexibility and not for some kind of mind-voodoo.  It actually
seems to help quite a bit.  Whoever described it as "sitting around" has no
idea what they're talking about and the poses can be quite difficult
(particularly for us gentlemen who for some reason seem to have a bit more
difficulty making our body parts do the required things).  I don't have an
opinion as to which tag it belongs to, but it certainly is a physical
fitness activity that fits in the same category as weight training,
aerobics classes, or "spinning" (indoor cycling on special bicycles).
