Tonight we had a special visit by Probation Commissioner Sal Martinez. He showed up with a smile and a brand new mat which he left for the boys unit. Fitzjoy Hellin taught a great class and the energy was terrific. We saw strong focus and determination, and some serious stretching. One boy I thought had a regular yoga practice before tonight but he said that this was his third class and he has been practicing when we're not there! We ended with a peaceful meditation and many commented how much better they felt afterward. Sal suggested we take this photo and two boys jumped in postures behind us! What a great guy Sal Martinez is! He also brought us swag from "2nd Chance" his annual fundraiser to raise funds for incarcerated youth coming this October. Stay tuned..
