Yoga after the Olympics

With the London Olympics recently over I was interested in all the talk about Yoga maybe becoming an Olympic sport sometime in the future. There is a lot of chatter on the subject on the web but in the end in my view Yoga just shouldn't become a competitive sport. It kind of defeats the whole point.

The only positive reason that I can think of to make Yoga an Olympic sport in the future is to give India a chance to improve its medal count. How a country of over 1 billion people that covers a whole continent can come away from London with only 6 medals is as strange as synchronized swimming still remaining an Olympic event, but that is for another day....
