DENVER (AP) - Colorado lawmakers have agreed to exempt yoga teaching programs from regulation.

A bill sent to the governor for his signature Wednesday would change a regulation that consider yoga-teacher classes a type of occupational training subject to state oversight.

The bill was inspired by news that a state agency planned to expand oversight of the schools, where people learn to become yoga instructors.

The Colorado Division of Private Occupational Schools recently sent letters to about 80 yoga studios saying the agency planned to step up regulation of teacher training.

Yoga studios opposed the change, which would have come with state inspections and fees of about $2,000.
