Re: “Richmond City Jail Abruptly Ends Its Much-Praised Yoga Program

About the abrupt severance of the relationship between Robbie Norris and the Richmond City Jail.
First, this seems to have been contrived while Robbie was away, in India, pursuing his yoga studies. He had no opportunity to present himself and make plain the specific values and strengths of his program. Judgment in absentia.
The inmates themselves have demonstrated the success of the program - and those in authority have observed improved behavior as the yoga program was being taught.
The program has met the needs of the prisoners- both physically and spiritually. They have written their own unsolicited, grateful testimonials.
A big plus to the jail yoga program is the character of Robbie himself. He is a man of unquestioned integrity, high principles, and a wide streak of altruism. What a fine role model for these imprisoned individuals!
Robbie has the gift of giving--giving of himself to help improve the situation of others.
It isn't necessary to document the value of his program with a statistical study. It documents itself by changed behavior and attitude.
The greatest loss in this harsh, unnecessary decision is suffered by the prison population themselves--who remain in silence.
