    Yoga, by contrast, has a non-dual cosmology, in which God is everything and permeates everything, and is at the same time also transcendent.

    The yogic path of embodied-knowing seeks to dissolve the historical ego, both individual and collective, as false. It sees the Christian fixations on history and the associated guilt, as bondage and illusions to be erased through spiritual practice. Yoga is a do-it-yourself path that eliminates the need for intermediaries such as a priesthood or other institutional authority. Its emphasis on the body runs contrary to Christian beliefs that the body will lead humans astray.
    For example, the apostle Paul was troubled by the clash between body and spirit, and wrote: “For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?” (Romans 7:22-24).

    Yoga is definitely a practical adwaitism ( advait vedanta ) based on non-dual cosmology.
    Other all modern religion have not such concept,they are dualistic in nature.
    So,all FOLLOWER OF ALL dualistic religion should read Patanjali Yogsutra.They will get the answer.
    From “Chitta Nirodha” TO “Nirvikalpa Nirbija Samadhi “their concept
    would be clear about Yoga.
