What about Intellectual and ethical integrity for Yoga Practitioners ?

The Yogic knowledge/practices are open (to use) for the whole humanity,
but Sanatana Dharma Traditions are the supplier of this Knowledge. This
is THE point, must be acknowledged / credited.
We don't publish a
simple research paper without giving due credit to people who's views
are cited therein. How come this (Yoga) most profound discovery in human
history to understand the "Essence of Being thru Yogic Knowledge and
Practices" is open for consumption without acknowledging its producers?

How is Sambhavi Mudra Hindu ? (Its simply science of energy in body)
How is breath Hindu ? Vaa-Si-Vaa-Si-Vaa-Si became Siva
