Melinda Thomas, from left, Cherry Jackson and Sharika Freeman work on a few sitting poses during a yoga class at the Athens-Clarke County Jail on Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2013, in Athens, Ga. A small group of female inmates meets each week to bend, stretch and breathe away tension and anxiety during a yoga class led by a certified instructor. They then immediately proceed to the �Circle of Life� group in which they talk through their problems, possible solutions to them, and long-range goals. After several months, jail officials are noticing a marked change in the attitudes and behavior of women who have gone through the program.
