I have a good friend who is a yoga instructor. He is also an Orthodox Christian of long standing. I took yoga under his direction for three years before moving to a different part of the country. He stressed breathing, stretching and relaxation methods and not meditation in his yoga instruction. As a result I was not uncomfortable taking those classes (which incidentally helped relieve my stress a good deal). However, I can imagine that some instructors would emphasize a different aspect of yoga and thus I would advise that you seek the guidance of your priest and talk directly with the yoga instructor to see whether or not this would be a component of her/his classes.
