Shorter term for Indian prisoners who pass yoga exam

Prison officers
in western
India have
come up with
a novel way for
convicts to
secure early
release —
master some
yoga poses
and pass an
exam, an
official said
Wednesday.
Inmates at
Yerwada
Central Jail in
Maharashtra
state can cut
their sentences
by up to three
months if they
impress
wardens in the
ancient Indian
practice, said
the prison
chief
responsible for
the
programme.
"There's a
written and
physical exam
and those who
excel will be
given
remission with
respect to their
performance,"
Bhushankumar
Upadhyay,
additional
director
general of the
Maharashtra
prison
department
told AFP.

I know almost all the prisoners
will want to learn yoga and pass
the exam afterall is good for their
health
