Churches ban child yoga classes
A yoga group for toddlers has been banned from two church halls by ministers who branded it a "sham" and "un-Christian".

Louise Woodcock, 41, the group's teacher, was told that the ancient Hindu and Buddhist meditation method "impinges" on the spiritual agenda of the churches.

Yesterday, Miss Woodcock, who has been turned away from Silver Street Baptist Church and St James's Church of England church in Taunton, Somerset, said the claims were "ridiculous" because her classes simply involve music and movement.

"I couldn't believe it when they suddenly said I couldn't have the hall any more because yoga is against their Christian ethos," she said. "It's crazy because we're talking about kids pretending to be animals and doing exercise routines to rhymes - it's really sweet. ...

Not much to add here as I agree with everybody on this one. Just throwing my a-men in there. Yoga has too much spiritualism in it and can lead a weaker Christian in to its ways. It's especially dangerous for the very young. In some cases even the martial arts go a little too far in their philosophy as well.

Despite repeated testimony about how spiritually
dead the UK is becoming it sure is nice to hear
that you guys still have some very alert and
faithful shepards over there.

One cannot serve two masters, and since we
Christians are commanded to "pray without ceasing"
and to meditate on Gods word "day and night", where
then is there any remaining mental or spiritual
resource to devote to Yoga or any other extranious
activity?

Even the devils believe in God.
But thats not the point is it.

The only way to True Spirituality and to connect with divine, is Jesus Christ the Son of God.

All other "religions" are a sham.

"Dhanwantari, the Vedic Father of Medicine, and the earliest known Hindu physician, who lived about 1,500 B.C., is supposed to have been the first to practice inoculation for smallpox. It is even stated that the ancient Hindus employed a vaccine, which they prepared by the transmission of the smallpox virus through a cow." (History of Inoculation and Vaccination, pp. 6, 13)

Yoga
"A school of Hindu philosophy advocating and prescribing a course of physical and mental disciplines for attaining liberation from the material world and union of the self with the Supreme Being or ultimate principle."

NOT Christian. So, correctly judged and rejected by those who run local church.

But I'm sure there are plenty of "halls" the other religion of Liberalism, will allow her to use for idolatrous purposes.

Thank God there are still some English Baptists and Anglican with principles! I just wished there were more of this kind of churches who would not compromise with worldly and heathen practices. I can just see the liberals and ecumenists foaming at their mouths.

The teaching of Yoga always starts with "harmless" exercises leading to a subsequent acceptance of the underlying philosophy.
This philosophy does not recognize a unique "Son of God" - that is something that all Yoga devotees may become ultimately - there is therefore no place for our Lord in this system.
"Yoga" and the belief in "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour" are mutually exclusive.
Thanks are due for the Ministers concerned, may further Ministers follow suit !
