Ivey signs bill allowing K-12 schools to teach yoga
The fight to ban yoga from Alabama public schools has ended after Gov. Kay Ivey signed a bill allowing the practice to be taught to K-12 students.
The legislation was sponsored by Democratic Rep. Jeremy Gray who did yoga as part of his training during his time as a college athlete.
The law says schools can opt out of teaching the practice.
In 1993 the Alabama Board of Education voted to prohibit yoga, hypnosis and meditation in public school classrooms.
