THE HOLY SYNOD OF THE ORTHODOX CHURCH OF GREECE ON YOGA

(16.6.2015)

ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΑ ENGLISH Русский

In the context of respect for religious freedom, which is constitutionally guaranteed and protected in Greece, and in light of our pastoral duty to prevent the establishment of an atmosphere of religious syncretism, on the occasion of the recent declaration, by the UN, of the 21st of June as the “International Day of Yoga”, the Holy Synod of the Church of Greece brings to the attention of its devout members that: “Yoga” is a fundamental sector of the religion of Hinduism; it comprises a variety of schools, disciplines, practices and trends and IS NOT a “type of physical exercise”.

In view of the above, “Yoga” is completely incompatible with our Orthodox Christian Faith and therefore has no place in the life of Christians.
