Prison inmates to be offered yoga classes

Seriously? We can't get vets the help they need, but we can give yoga classes to prison inmates? If this isn't proof enough that all of our country's priorities are truly upside down...
HeraldNet: The New Mexico Department of Corrections is using a new method to prepare inmates for life outside prison — yoga.

Corrections officials recently launched a "yoga and mindfulness" program as part of the department's many rehabilitation efforts.

According to the department, the yoga classes will "help incarcerated individuals on their path to self-discovery, healing, and ultimately into living differently."

Officials said other prisons systems are using yoga classes as a method for increasing inmate and public safety and for lowering rates of recidivism rates.
Yet another stab in the dark from the rehabilitationists that have tried anything and everything  under the sun for decade upon decade when the one proven deterrent is HARD TIME!
