Bob Altman on Bringing Yoga to Youths in Need

Litigation attorney Bob Altman founded his practice with the goal of helping others – and while his 35-year career in law may be winding down, his second calling of bringing yoga to abused, homeless and underserved youths is just ramping up. In this interview for The Huffington Post Blog, Executive Director Rob Schware learns how Altman’s new yoga service initiative, Grounded for Good, is making a difference in the lives of young people.

“One day (we) met with the Covenant House staff to see how they thought the program was doing. One of the administrators said, ‘We want you to know that what you are doing is really changing our kids. We view this as much more than just an activity our youths are participating in.’”
