Focus on South Florida: Yoga Gangsters

Kids in crisis are kids in need. They are stuck in a system that runs on survival–food, clothing, shelter, safety. But once the bare necessities are met, then what? A Miami-based nonprofit thinks it has the answer.
This organization reaches out to at-risk youth in South Florida, and in 10 states from New York to Texas. And it does so in a rather unorthodox manner. Through yoga. Even its name raises eyebrows. Yoga Gangsters. We focus on what the program is and how it works.
