Yoga Wins Trial in California Elementary Schools



The trial in Encinitas, California, over whether yoga instruction should be barred from public elementary schools because it is intrinsically religious concluded today when Judge John Meyer ruled that the yoga classes can continue. This trial has been closely watched by those in the yoga community since it is the first high-profile case on the issue. In a press release, Dean Broyles, the attorney representing the parents who oppose the yoga being taught in their child's school, indicates that an appeal is likely.
