Yoga for inmates

As someone who enjoys meditating (while running), I enjoyed reporting this story on a weekly yoga class for inmates at the Metro West Detention Center just outside Miami.

On Fridays, substitute teacher Lawrence Huff, 70, spends more than 2 hours teaching yoga, one class for men and one for women. His aim is to help the inmates stay centered and calm despite their criminal issues and current environment.  And from what I saw by observing the class, the students seemed to look forward to the sessions.
