Yoga in schools attacked by the Church, KDH

The Education Ministry's proposal to introduce yoga into the Slovak basic school curriculum has come under fire from the Catholic Church and the ruling coalition Christian Democrats party (KDH). Education Minister Milan Ftačnik said the project focused on relaxation exercises, and would be an optional course. The Church argued it promotes atheism and an unhealthy focus on oneself; the KDH threatened to leave the ruling coalition of the proposal went through.
