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

I worked for 16 years in the Va. Juvenile Justice System and am deeply sorry that Robbie's yoga was not available to this population which could have benefited so many of the kids. I have just retired as a LPC who has counselor and worked with both mental health and substance abuse adults and adolescents for 25 years. I think and believe that any program that offers skills that enable a person to better manage stress, anger, frustration, sadness, pain, anxiety, depression or any variety of these emotions is an important rehabilitation tool. It is also a compassinate intervetion. I would hope that the jail administration would review its decision about not allowing Robbie to continue his yoga work with the inmates. It appears to me to be in the best interest of the inmates, the RCJC and the community for all parties to meet and seek to reconcile this issue.
Sincerely,

H.Ann Jenkins, City Resident
