Montgomery County, Maryland is suspending a program that funds training for employees.

The program has prompted several investigations. According county records, the training includes "hot yoga" lessons, glass-fusing art classes, fashion and portrait photography classes and a class called "The Christian Home."

In a statement, the county's chief administrative officer writes, "serious questions have been raised about the appropriateness of a small number of the hundreds of courses covered by the program."

The county says it will not approve new courses until a review of the program is completed.
