Southern Baptist leader says avoid yoga

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Yoga is coming under fire from a Southern Baptist leader.

Southern Baptist Seminary President Albert Mohler is calling for Christians to avoid yoga and its spiritual attachments.

Mohler said the stretching and meditative discipline derived from eastern religions is not a christian pathway to God. Mohler brought his argument up in an online essay last month.

Since then he said he has received feedback agreeing with and disagreeing with his views through email and comments on blogs and other websites.
