School of Encinitas exposes children to practice yoga
Pacific Institute of justice has filed a lawsuit against the school district management, the California Encinitas. According to the initiators of the lawsuit, representatives of the education system forced children to participate in yoga clases.
“These clases are funded by an external organization and teach astanskiy type of yoga that teaches the system of eight goals, leading to onenes with God”, – according to a pres release provided by the wording “Slavic Sacramento”.

Workers Socal school districts argue that the U.S. Constitution does not prohibit the practice of yoga in public schools, moreover, taught the course, the teachers got rid of any hint of religious component. However, according to the investigation of the Institute, many teachers encouraged their students to participate in specific religious acts such as prayer to the sun. Because the Supreme court does not allow mentors praying with children in public schools, advocates of the Institute of justice call on the court to be consistent and relevant way to relate to the teaching of yoga.
“Of course, the Institute of justice exists to protect the religious rights of families and individuals”, – says the organization’s President, brad Dacus, – in fact, the school district adopted the “state religion” and now is forcing our children to participate in these clases. Their actions violate the fundamental right of parents to raise their children according to their beliefs and disregard the Constitution, the document that founded our country.”
Despite the fact that the judge of the County of San Diego agreed that the clases are religious, the court decided that yoga clases are appropriate in elementary school. Trying to appeal the judge’s decision, parents of students filed an appeal in the Fourth district California court of appeal.
“The secular world is highly fought over in order to push Christianity out of public schools – commented one of the authors of the claim, attorney Michael Peffer, – we declare that we will quietly observe how these secular people are doing with our children any religious activities”.
