 Church Minister Forbids 'Un-Christian' Yoga

A church minister has forbidden an above-50s yoga group saying that the exercise is 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.
