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

Peace with Everyone.
Please,
enough of all the negative and mean and slanderous and gee-i-am-a-jail-expert comments!
indeed,
Robbie's sharing of ashtanga yoga with the souls within the walls of the once Richmond City
Jail and the now Richmond City Justice Center was vital, was good, was Beaty - full, was Life -
Encouraging.i
indeed,
we pray that we may somehow talk with Sheriff C.T. Woody, Jr., a
very caring and insightful and purposeful man, The Man when it comes to ALL things within
the Richmond City Sheriff's Office and within the walls of the RCJC.
alas,
this is why i ask for everyone, everyone, to focus on the positive and the hopeful for be
assured that Sheriff Woody reads all of our words and will assuredly reach out to us if we
encourage the positive.
hi there,
this is a Friend of Robbie, a student of ashtanga yoga with Robbie for just seven months now,
the soul who was the Education Department teacher and counselor within the Richmond
City Jail and the new Richmond City Justice Center for 36 and a half years (April 1978 - September 30, 2015).
Beaucoup of our Students, Students of the RCJ and RCJC ,sanctuary (as the school within
the walls was once known), shared ashtanga yoga with Robbie, and, believe me, each and all
of their sacred Lives changed.
shortly after i retired, i was Blessed with a heart attack.
accordingly,
i had to keep my word to Robbie that i would come on down to the yoga studio at 3rd and
Clay Streets downtown, and share ashtanga yoga with Robbie, and with many of our now -
Free Students.
daily, well, almost daily, i share yoga with Robbie and other good souls, along with daily
gym workouts.
daily, both Robbie and i reach deeply in to the hearts and minds of those once in our
sacred care within the RCJ and the RCJC.
Robbie charges those once imprisoned not one penny ... yoga "costs" are all taken care
of by good souls who firmly believe in the joy of ashtanga yoga and who see those once imprisoned return to Being a Human Being, a Loved Human Being,
with a daily practice (or a practice as one is able to share).
attend:
gossiping about things You know nothing about, i.e., the RCJ and or the RCJC, the
Sheriff's Office, Dr. Scarbrough, et al., etc., will not, will not, will not ever allow Robbie,
a Good Man, back in to the RCJC so as to share his practice of ashtanga yoga with the
men and the Women within those profound walls.

want to do something ?
call and / or write to Sheriff Woody and Dr. Scarbrough.
ask them to talk with You and / or Robbie.
Speak of your Love for those imprisoned within the walls of the RCJC and how Robbie's
sharing of ashtanga yoga will share such Light.

The fissures within the walls of the RCJC await your Light.
i know these things.
i have seen such Light pouring through such fissures.

Thank You for allowing me to ramble.

i humbly pray that You will reach to Sheriff Woody and Dr. Scarbrough and ask each of
them to reconsider Robbie's not - being allowed back in to the RCJC status.

Robbie's ashtanga yoga sharings are Light and Peace and Love and Aware Commitment and
Service to the Caring for All Souls, especially for those within the walls of the RCJC.

Peace, Love, and Respect,
john.
