A Tai Chi class in Totley has been evicted from its current location of All Saints church hall.
The church wants to focus its attention on a Christian perspective but through doing this has had to tell the exercise group to find a new home for their class.
Reverend David Rhodes from All Saints Church in Totley told BBC Radio Sheffield why he had taken the decision to ban the class:
“We feel very upset about the upset that this has caused. We are not critical of the people at all. We come from a wider perspective within the church and we see Tai Chi as being an aspect of the Chinese Taoism religion. We want to uphold a whole life spirituality that centres on Jesus. And we feel that the two things clash. We are concerned that we stay consistent with that.”
