Recently other Christian denominations and clergy have railed against Yoga.
Last year a church hall in Devon, England, barred a yoga class. "Some will say at its root it is an eastern spirituality which they would not feel sits well with Christian spirituality," said the Venerable Mark Butchers, Archdeacon of Barnstaple.
In 2010 a pastor in Seattle, US, called the practice "demonic".
And in 2008 Malaysia's leading Islamic council said yoga could corrupt Muslims but backed down from issuing a fatwa after a backlash.
