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

How unbelievably sad Richmond!! The people involved in this yoga program provided a much needed service to the inmates. The benefits of yoga are so many I can't even begin to explain. The reduction of stress, anxiety, and the teaching of mindfulness. The physical exertion, that's not for the weak, but can be catered to any persons level of fitness...I simply do not understand why a successful program would be abruptly halted other than "someone" was feeling a little ego damage. That is something yoga helps remind those who practice, to keep that ego forever in check. I hope this decision is reconsidered. I remind the people in the decision areas as well, Yoga is not a religion. KLM can continue ministry and the yoga program without being threatened. Shame on the people behind this decision thinking their way is the only way. Did anyone bother to check with the inmates who'd developed a practice about this decision?
