I never felt pushed into being Hindu or New Age by practicing yoga.
Yoga is one of the six āstika ("orthodox") schools of Hindu philosophy.

I'm not sure how you would practice yoga w/o practicing Hinduism. From the goals of yoga to the physical poses, it's all based on spirtualism and worship.
I know it's origins are in hinduism but never heard of yoga teaching or forcing hinduism on anyone.
