Three Virginia yoga teachers took action Tuesday to stop the state's efforts to regulate yoga teacher training programs. The teachers filed a federal lawsuit claiming that teaching yoga is a form of protected free speech, according to a recent Washington Post article.

Leitner-Wise, a plaintiff and president of U.S. 1 Yoga Teacher Training
told the Washington Post.
