Yoga and meditation are for spiritual well-being. Spiritual bliss occurrs in yoga practice as you become conscious of your purpose in life. Yoga of all kinds allows us to see the truth and reach a state of Samadhi.

Expansion of mind is reached through asana, meditation, mantra and pranayama. This in turm causes an awakened state of super consciousness. Yoga teachers familiar with the teachings of Patanjali are trained in the path to Samadhi (A level of concentrated meditation, or dhyana, in Yoga schools and Ashrams). Samadhi is a state of transcendent union where concentration becomes one with the object of concentration; supreme union with God.

End result: States who prevent one from reaching Samadhi through regulations are violating the first ammendment of the US Constitution. The government can't stop me from praying and the government can't stop me from practicing yoga!
