Urban Yogis – Yoga in Juvenile Detention Facility

 

Urban Yogis is a documentary series initiated by Deepak Chopra and released on the Chopra Well, Mr. Chopras youtube channel. So inspiring and makes me really want to get started with my idea on teaching yoga for free..

Eddie Starks (videoclip) is one of the yoga instructors participating in Urban Yogis, also Tara Stiles and in this clip we see Leslie Brooker from Lineage Project, an organization who practice mindfulness activities in juvenile detention centers. The compassion and solidarity is so profound and real when you see people devote themselves in this kind of way.
