Nepal’s government has announced it is requring students in grades four through eight to take yoga classes.
The government believe the classes will give students exercise and improve their health.
Yoga is an exercise program that combines breathing and stretches.
Though many schools around the world offer yoga classes, Nepal is the first country to formally require its students to take them.
The new rule will mean that yoga joins other required classes like math, science, English, and the Nepali language.
