The Horizon Story: Yoga In Juvenile Detention Facilities
Ashtanga yoga instructor Eddie Stern joins Leslie Booker to teach yoga to teenagers in a juvenile detention facility in the Bronx. Leslie is a teacher with The Lineage Project, an organization that places yoga and meditation instructors in detention centers, public schools, and other community sites around New York. Their mission is to share these practices with youth who might fall victim to crime and violence, in the hope that the healing, grounding tools gained through meditation will help them improve their situations. Hear what the kids have to say about their experience learning yoga!
