                     Yoga has helped improve some key variables related to  offending  (e.g., impulsivity,

               aggression),  as  well  as  showed  improvements  on  variables  that  could  increase  offenders'
               abilities to participate in treatments that are specifically aimed at reducing their risk of criminal

               behaviour (e.g., depression, attention, emotional regulation).

                     Considering the potential that yoga has to add to rehabilitative endeavours, we intend to
               make it an important part of the routine of the inmate.
