    ATHENS - The practice of yoga has "no place in the lives of Christians". This is the declaration made on the suject by the Holy Synod of the Church of Greece in response to the International Day of Yoga, which was established by the United Nations in 2014.

    As daily To Vima online reports, the Holy Synod has argued that yoga has "no place in the lives of Christians" since it is a fundamental aspect of Hinduism and as such is not considered a "form of exercise". The Holy Synod also stated in its announcement that it respects the freedom of religious belief, but claims that is has a responsibility in order to avoid developing a "climate of religious syncretism".
