Hindu community welcomes Massachusetts church hosting yoga
Hindus have welcomed First Congregational Church of Millbury, an affiliate of United Church of Christ in Millbury (Massachusetts), for hosting yoga classes.

Millbury First Church, whose history goes back to 1,747, and which calls itself "friendly church on the hill", is hosting weekly class on Fridays from January 20 to February 24 for all levels of mat and chair yoga and accessible to all levels of fitness by certified yoga instructor Carol Dearborn.

The classes, whose proceeds will benefit the Church, are structured to make one feel revitalised in body and mind, according to reports.

Church website stated: "Events during the week such as yoga, book studies, and our knitting group fill our community with spiritual food". "We follow the teaching of Jesus Christ and worship God through traditional spiritual practices, education, mission, and ministry" it added. Reverend Carol Reynolds is the Pastor.

Welcoming Millbury First Church for hosting yoga classes, US-based distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, urged all the Massachusetts public schools to introduce multi-beneficial yoga programs in their curriculums.

According to US National Institutes of Health, yoga may help one to feel more relaxed, be more flexible, improve posture, breathe deeply, and get rid of stress. According to "2016 Yoga in America Study", about 37 million Americans (which included many celebrities) now practice yoga; and yoga is strongly correlated with having a positive self image. 

Yoga was the repository of something basic in the human soul and psyche, Zed added.
