Occupational therapist Kaelyn Rogers teaches yoga to inmates in the Idaho State Correctional Institution.

Yoga therapist Kaelyn Rogers spent a year-and-a-half traveleing the world, studying yoga and contemplating how she could bring that experience back to Boise to the benefit of the community. Rogers' solution was to bring yoga into IDOC facilities and train inmates. The program has been successful and on Thursday, she joins Idaho Matters with Deputy Warden Randy Valley from the Idaho State Correctional Institution.
