WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Smithsonian is asking for the public to help fund an exhibit about the history of yoga.

The first-ever exhibition on the visual history of yoga is scheduled to debut this fall at the Sackler Gallery.

WRC-TV ( ) reports that on May 29, the Smithsonian will launch an online fundraising campaign that's the first of its time for the institution. The goal is to raise $125,000.

Curator Debra Diamond says yoga was a good subject for this kind of fundraising effort "because community has been part of it for centuries."
