Bill description: This bill exempts yoga instruction from proprietary school regulations.
Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market? Conversely, does it eliminate or reduce government intervention in the market?
Currently, under Idaho Code 33-2403, government regulators argue schools that teach yoga could be considered proprietary postsecondary institutions. If so, those schools would require registration and a license to operate in the state. In order to obtain this license, under Idaho Administrative Rule 08.01.11, the schools must provide to the state staff lists to show their qualifications, proof of effectiveness, and their curricula. The purpose of this bill is to exempt these schools, furthering yoga instruction in Idaho. Yoga Alliance, a non-profit established in 1999 to certify teachers and teaching institutions, is already providing this service on behalf of the consumer. Yoga Alliance provides effective certification for schools already operating in Idaho. (+1)
