Southampton Church bans Hindu yoga classes

by | 26th, September 2012

THERE will be no yoga at St Edmund’s Church, Southampton. Father John Chandler says “yoga is a Hindu spiritual exercise”. It is banned. The place must be used only for Catholic methods of relaxation, such as trad jazz, worrying about sex and thrash metal.

Yoga Instructor Cori Withell (not a Hindu; pictured left) said he paid £180 to rent the space for her classes. She says:

“I had never heard about any religious issue with yoga before but I have looked into it since and found that some other religions feel that when people meditate it could let the devil inside them. But there was never any meditation in my class – it was just exercises. Yoga is not religious: spiritual, but not religious.”

Thank God! Yoga is what newlyweds do, useful for men to be acquainted with yoga pants, and being able to fold themselves into a hot hatchback.

If you need to be Hindu to do yoga, then expect to see millions of Hindu men giving the Catholic Church the rush of new blood is craves
