Church bans ‘un-Christian’ yoga

London, July 29 (ANI): A church minister has banned an over-50s yoga group as she has deemed the exercise un-Christian.

Reverend Amanda Roper of Radcliffe, Manchester, was concerned that the tutors in the popular, gentle Indian activity - linked to Hinduism and Buddhism - could be preaching the rival religions.

And she feared the yoga group’s 30 members, aged up to 82, could be “spiritually vulnerable”.

Now the group - which for the last ten years has paid 60-pound a week to meet at Bridge Methodist Church in Radcliffe, near Manchester - is looking for new premises. (ANI)
