Iran has detained 30 at yoga class citing inappropriate clothing and behavior.
Participating in mixed sporting events is forbidden in Iran. In fact, Iranian law bans most activities that mix men and women.
Iran segregates transportation and universities, as well as places of work. While yoga can be legally taught in the country, the classes must be single-sex and taught only by a licensed teacher.

Police raided the class and arrested yogis for “abnormal behavior” & “improper clothing.” Iran bans activities that mix men & women – but Iranians increasingly use yoga to deal with rising social & political pressure pic.twitter.com/31TXXpm7nb

Roughly 30 individuals taking part in a private yoga session were detained in Iran, according to reports, sparking outbursts of fury across the nation’s social media community. The people were arrested in the northern city of Gorgan, where they were apparently taking part in a mixed class. Local justice department official Massoud Soleimani said the instructor, who was also arrested, had no licence to run the class and had advertised the event on Instagram.
He also said that those taking part were wearing “inappropriate clothing” and had “behaved abnormally” and that the security forces had been monitoring the home for some time before the arrests, the Tasnim news agency reported.
While revealing the arrests, Mr Soleimani also lambasted the “lack of surveillance of activities” on social media in the country. More
Don’t laugh. If the leftists get their way, this kind of stuff may be coming to a neighborhood near you. In a sober world, this sort of ridiculousness would be laughed off the stage, but these people don’t play and neither should we.
THIS is the country we sent pallets of money to in order to prop up their government and economy? Let’s see if THIS makes the MSM! 😡🤬

Iran arrests entire yoga class and its instructor for ‘inappropriate outfits.’ Of course, everyone in the world knows that yoga is anti-Islamic and thus must be banned. Maybe some of Tehran’s Mullahs should try it 2 lose weight, improve their health https://t.co/Uoh89TRlfh
