Interesting quote from a Toronto Catholic religion teacher:
“It was a yoga exercise,” Brown says, revealing to a reporter that she had aqua yoga tights under her skirt, just like the day she proved how flexible she is to her students. “You stretch until you’re aligned. That’s what I showed them. I’m not ashamed.”
“Why would the children be embarrassed,” Brown asks, noting she performed the exercise during lunch hour. “They have sex in the hallway and they smoke.”
One comment from a former students in reddit:
This teacher taught at my high school when I was there not too long ago. I graduated 3 years ago and everything the kids were reporting are definitely true. Highly inappropriate stuff to be doing at a school but she was a good person at heart. She only taught religion classes while I was there and I personally didnt have to be taught by her. However, my friends who have had her as a teacher kind of share the same thought; she’s been like this for as long as we remember in high school (2009-2013) but I guess no one really bothered reporting it until recently.
We have written before about the dangers of yoga in gym and religion class and in the chapels of the OCSB.
Now here is a great article
I asked Father Michael that same question, and he told me that if I’d asked him about yoga 5 years ago, he probably wouldn’t have had an opinion on it. It wasn’t until he started practicing deliverance ministry that he realized the impact of yoga on people’s souls, and the dangers that it was introducing into their lives. “It wasn’t even on my radar, as a priest, five years ago. And I’d bet it isn’t on most priest’s radars, if they’ve never seen stuff like this.”
Could yoga be a partial reason why catholic schools have no better moral results than public schools?
