strange yoga posture

Is there extremism in Yoga?

Is there extremism in Yoga? Today when I was looking pictures of yogic posture in different social Medias, it made me think for a while. Regular practice gives Excellency but is there a limit point? Are we doing yoga or making some else bodily performance?
It is yoga a technique by which we make control over body and find the soul. Here finding soul means a greater realization. Are we doing yoga consciously for higher goal or it has become a bodily performance. The important thing to be noted here is that it is very different than only physical training.
The two preliminary stages of before Yoga are golden rules which lead to higher realm of peace merging the soul with the source. These days it is nice that yoga has been taken as a science or a technique for better health and peace. Without practicing the rules and playing a game does not give result as one expects. Our society is not that of the forest dwellers time so we should update we should follow the rules on relativity to the metropolitan we live. Are we following the Yama and Niyama?
The five yamas are:
Ahimsa: nonviolence, Satya: truthfulness, Asteya: nonstealing, Brahmacharya: continence and Aparigraha: noncovetousness
The five niyamas are:
Saucha: cleanliness, Samtosa: contentment, Tapas: heat; spiritual austerities, Svadhyaya: study of the sacred scriptures and of one’s self and svara pranidhana: surrender to God
Wish Peace and blessings to all on the occasion of World Yoga Day June 21.
