Judge Rules Yoga is Fit for Public Schools
Yoga classes will continue to be offered to students in one Southern California school district despite complaints from some parents. In what might be the first trial of its kind in the nation, a San Diego Superior Court judge ruled Monday that yoga classes taught within the Encinitas Union School District don’t violate any laws because they are not religious in nature. Some parents in the district had filed suit to stop the yoag program, saying the teachings were inherently religious and could be considered a form of worship. District officials insisted all religious aspects of the program were dropped before the classes started.
