We Did It, Arkansas!

February 6, 2015

Thanks to the support and outreach by the Yoga Alliance® community and the diligent efforts of Senators Uvalde Lindsey and Missy Irvin, and Representatives Charlie Collins and John Vines, our legislation to protect the rights of yoga teacher training programs to operate in Arkansas without unnecessary intrusion, Senate Bill 94, jumped its last hurdle and passed the full House Chamber unanimously, 97-0, yesterday!

What's next?

The bill will now go to the desk of Governor Asa Hutchinson for his signature and will become law in the coming months.
