Get the plate, spread the love, and help legalize yoga in schools
In May 2019, the AL state legislature approved the creation of the Alabama Yoga Distinctive License Plate to fund yoga in public schools, public housing, community facilities, and other areas in need.
The tag will become available to the public and production will begin once 1000 people pre commit to get the tag.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT WILL THE FUNDS RAISED FROM THE CAR TAG SUPPORT?
Proceeds raised from the car tag will fund the Alabama 4-H Yoga program which provides Yoga in Schools, Public Housing, Libraries, Community Centers and other areas across the state.
HOW MUCH DOES THE Yoga & Love CAR TAG COST?
The tag costs $50 (plus your usual vehicle registration fees and taxes), of which $41.25 will benefit Yoga & Love/Alabama 4-H, and is tax-deductible each year.
DO I NEED TO WAIT UNTIL MY RENEWAL MONTH TO PRE-ORDER?
No, you do not need to wait. In fact, please don't - we need your support now! The pre-order process shows the Alabama Department of Revenue that there are enough supporters for the Yoga & Love license plate to be manufactured. It is separate from the license plate renewal process. We need to secure 1,000 pre-orders by May 31, 2020.
I’VE PRE-ORDERED, WHEN CAN I GET MY LICENSE PLATE?
When we reach 1,000 pre-orders, the license plate will move into production, which will take about 2-3 months. Everyone who pre-ordered a license plate will be notified via email when the plates are ready, and you will receive a voucher to redeem at your local vehicle registration office.
WHAT INFORMATION IS NEEDED TO PRE ORDER?
You will need to provide your contact information (name, address, phone, and email), as well as the make, model, and either the current Alabama license plate number of your vehicle or your VIN Number.
WHAT IF I ALREADY HAVE A PERSONALIZED LICENSE PLATE?
If you already have a personalized license plate, there is ultimately no additional cost to switch. You will still need to pre-order and pay your $50 now.
IS THE FEE REFUNDABLE?
If we do NOT reach the required pre-order threshold we will contact you regarding a refund.
ISN’T YOGA ILLEGAL IN SCHOOLS?
Yes in Alabama, yoga is currently illegal in public schools.
As an agency of the federal government, the 4H Club is usually allowed to teach regardless though sometimes calling it “mindful movement”. The Legislature originally rejected the plate funding school yoga and only approved it because it now funds the 4-H Yoga Program. We are working with a bipartisan coalition of legislators to legalize the 4-H Yoga Program for use in schools. The legislation will be introduced and should pass in the next legislative session.
