The idea of kindergartners sitting in lotus position has gotten several Catholic school parents all tied in knots. (Bad News).

The idea of kindergartners sitting in lotus position has gotten several Catholic school parents all tied in knots. Their complaints that yoga during physical education classes was promoting Hinduism or even a form of mind control resulted in the cancellation of the classes at St. Angela Merici School in Owensboro, Kentucky.

Not all parents shared that concern. Drew Augenstein, whose 6-year-old daughter was in the class, said it got blown out of proportion.

Yoga is a "good way for stretching and relaxation," Augenstein told the Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer newspaper. "Heck, I ought to be doing it myself."
