Turkish Education Ministry does a U-turn on yoga in schools

The Turkish Education Ministry withdrew a directive it had sent to provincial directorates advising schools to teach yoga to children after reactions from conservative groups, T24 news site reported on Friday.

Some Islamist associations and foundations opposed the ministry’s Feb. 6 directive as they said yoga instilled a culture from a region where pagan beliefs are widespread, T24 said.
