An Anglican church in Wales might face boycott from some in the community after it banned “non-Christian” yoga from the premises. St. David’s Church in Ceredigion decided not to allow yoga as part of its community center offerings, concerned that the practice that originated in India “might be seen to be in conflict with Christian values and belief,” according to The Telegraph. Some have apparently warned that yoga philosophy “teaches participants to focus on oneself, instead of on the one true God.”

A Church in Wales spokesman clarified some of the church’s rules: “There is no problem to have alcohol in the building, but alcohol is not to be sold. Pilates is allowed, but not yoga. Also no activity of non-Christian activity.” Some locals have said that they will protest the Parochial Church Council over the decision, however, with one resident writing, “I and no doubt some Blaenporth residents are not at all happy with the view the church has on community activities like yoga, tai chi, taekwondo, cash prize bingo and the like.
