D.C. wants to teach juvenile delinquents Yoga, Tai-Chi | Washington Examiner: "The District's troubled juvenile justice agency is looking for a yoga teacher, or maybe a tai-chi instructor, to work with some of the city's most dangerous youths. The idea for the new Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services programming comes from interim deputy director Barry Holman. Late last month, Holman e-mailed the agency's staff to see if they have 'hidden talents that might be tapped to further our work with the young people in our care.' In the e-mail obtained by The Washington Examiner, Holman said his primary interest was in finding among the staff an instructor certified in yoga, tai-chi, or another 'mind-body connection discipline.'"
