Historic Trinity Cathedral, an Episcopal church in Easton (Maryland), USA, has opened up its sanctuary to accommodate Yoga classes. Suzie Hurley is the teacher of these Yoga classes, who also teaches pranayama and meditation.
The logo of the website of “InSpirit Yoga with Suzie Hurley” includes Om, the iconic Hindu symbol which is used to introduce and conclude religious work in Hinduism. Her website states: Yoga is more than just physical exercise. Yoga was always meant to be a spiritual practice. Two of the main historical texts of Yoga are the Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali and the Bhagavad Gita.
Rajan Zed, President of Universal Society of Hinduism said that according to a report of United States (US) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: “Yoga is the most popular complementary health approach in the US – used by 14.3% of the adult population, or 35.2 million people”. According to the 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. Yoga is the repository of something basic in the human soul and psyche, Rajan Zed added.
