A church pastor in Missouri told followers to stop practicing yoga because it has 'demonic roots' and is essentially a pagan practice. Yogis disagreed with the pastor's characterization, with one calling it 'ludicrous.'

You can participate in a free yoga class every Tuesday morning on Peachtree Corners’ Town Green through the end of August.

Peachtree Corners is holding Yoga on the Green every Tuesday at 8 a.m. The classes are taught by Sun Dragon Yoga, a nearby studio, and Sleep Number will provide “light snacks” for post-class enjoyment.


The classes are open to those with all levels of experience, from those who’ve never stepped foot on a yoga mat to master veterans. Participants should wear comfortable clothes that allow a full range of motion, including lots of bending and stretching. You should also bring a yoga mat if you have one, though a limited number of extras will be available to borrow, as well as non-glass water bottle and a small towel to help with any issues with sweat or traction.

The free classes kick off on Tuesday, April 30 and end with a class on Aug. 27. Each class lasts an hour.
