Today I present a very special treat. Conservative groups in Alabama uphold a ban on yoga in school citing fears of the practice spreading Hinduism.
Legislation that would have allowed yoga to be taught in Alabama public schools died in committee Wednesday, stalling a years-long battle by one state legislator to bring the practice back.
Bill AL HB246 was put forth by Alabama State Rep. Jeremy Gray, who wrote that bringing yoga back to school would be voluntary. It sought to overturn a ban on the practice in Alabama schools in place since 1993.Source: Insider
