Tai Chi and Religion

 

Court Rules Yoga Not A Religion – Will Tai Chi Be Next?

 

A comment on our Facebook Fan Page yesterday followed up with some VERY interesting information.  A lively discussion developed around the situation of a church that ousted a group of seniors and arthritic folks for improving their health with tai chi, saying that tai chi has religious origins (see yesterday’s post).   Helen V. informed us of a recent California Court that issued a ruling just a few weeks ago about a very similar situation involving Yoga.

A group of concerned parents in California protested to the school board about their kids learning Yoga as part of the PE curriculum, stating that Yoga is part of a religion.  Long story short, the Court ruled that practicing Yoga is NOT a religious expression, and the curriculum may remain in the school.

This is WONDERFUL!  And I hope it will pave the way toward allowing tai chi practice in the schools too!
