The move is crucial “in order to prevent the spread of new religious cults and movements,” reads the letter.
A second letter, sent to the heads of the departments for physical culture and education, refers to Hatha yoga as “inextricably linked to religious practices” and as having “an occult character,” Kommersant reported Friday.
Hatha yoga is a branch of yoga that encompasses physical exercises and a focus on deep breathing.
