    A British vicar has banned yoga classes from his church hall because he fears they could lead his flock away from Christian teaching.

    "I fully appreciate that for some people yoga is just exercise, but I am also aware that yoga is often a gateway to other things, such as Eastern mysticism," the Rev. Dick Farr said. "We are here to promote Jesus and don't want to offer a platform to anybody who is going to undermine that."

    The ban at St. Mary's Church in the village of Henham has the backing of the church council and most local residents, Farr said.
