TADAsana/Yoga & Love is an US 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization tasked with Providing Non-Commercial Yoga, Mindfulness, and Healthy Lifestyle education primarily but not exclusively to youth, particularly in traditionally undeserved communities. We partner with a number of other organizations as well as with agencies of the Local, State and Federal Governments, all funded by private donations.
In 2019, after 2 years of trying and delays (due to Yoga in Schools being Illegal in Alabama) the State of Alabama Approved the creation of a Yoga & Love Distinctive License Plate Category to fund yoga, mindfulness, and healthy lifestyle education.
Through 2019 and 2020 we worked with Rep. Jeremy Gray and other members of the legislature and state government to remove the school yoga ban. The measure passed the house and was on its way to becoming law when the COVID-19 Pandemic forced the adjournment of the legislative session for 2020 for all but the most important budgetary matters.
Rep. Margie Wilcox, chair of the Legislative Oversight Committee on License Plates, extended the deadline to have 1000 Preorder for the plate which is where we are now. The full funds needed to pay for them has been donated will be used to ensure the plate is created and in your local DMV.
In 2021, we will be filming the First season of our Multimedia School Yoga Program in the State Legislature where it will follow a yoga club of inner city youth as they #BeTheChange they wish to see in the world by showing kids how to effect change in the world and having the Government listen to them and Legalize Yoga in schools, complete with yoga and mindfulness lessons taught by students and government officials.
As of September 2020, Yoga & Love Personalized License Plates number of pre-commitments has been fulfilled!
The new Alabama Yoga License Plates will be able for purchase at DMV's in the middle of September 2020.
