|Stephen and Jennifer Sedlock sued the Encinitas Union School District when they learned their daughters were doing yoga at their elementary school. The Sedlocks felt that the yoga program was spiritual, or religious, in nature. Further, if they opted their children out of the yoga class, then the children missed out on physical activity through school.
San Diego Superior Court Judge John S. Meyer, the first judge to hear the case, disagreed with the Sedlock's contention. He found that the way the school conducted the yoga class, with a series of increasingly difficult poses and breathing exercises, was secular in nature. The Sedlocks appealed Judge Meyer's decision.
Court of Appeal Justice Cynthia Aaron of California's Fourth District wrote the court's opinion, which affirmed the lower court decision.
