Stretching themselves to the limit - The Niroga Institute brings the benefits of yoga to minority and at-risk communities
It's Monday morning in Unit 3 of the Alameda County Juvenile Justice Center in San Leandro, California, where they hold yoga classes in two units five days a week. A weekly class is also offered to staff. Yoga is supposed to help the teens relax in this extremely stressful environment. It's also meant to help improve their lives after they're released.
