Yoga banned from British Catholic Church hall

Personally, I think this is just silly.

The yoga that is practiced by women throughout the West in order to increase health, relaxation, and flexibility has little to do with yoga, the traditional Hindu spiritual practice.

As such, I don’t see why it would be banned from a Catholic meeting hall.

It can be perfectly compatible with Christianity because it doesn’t have any real intrinsic spirituality in and of itself. It’s not about worship of Hindu godforms or Hindu spiritual practices.

I mean, sure…yoga itself is a traditionally Hindu spiritual practice. But it’s not what is practiced in the West as “yoga”.
