Responses by incarcerated youth when asked: 'If you have taken a Niroga Yoga class, what did you learn from it?'"I learned some stretches to help stretch certain parts of my arms and legs that I didnít know how to before and how to relax myself (very helpful). I tend to get real anxious or excited all the time."
