From incarceration to meditation

Missouri parolees put on new path with meditation:  This is a neat story of a man in Missouri who runs an alternative program for parolees.  He’s got the support of local judges, which back his claim that just 6% of those who complete his program return to crime.

Studio Roll Call

This series, the same postures again and again, tends to attract those with some OCD type behaviors.  I’ll admit I’ve got some tics; I keep track of how many classes I’ve taken and I do like to check out studios when I travel.  I haven’t traveled much lately.  But here’s a list of where I’ve taken a class with links, comments or reviews.
