In this June 24, 2014, Rodney Scott, center, takes part in a yoga class sponsored by a local non-profit group called ‘I Grow Chicago’ along the often violent streets of Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood. The students “live in an environment where everythings rushed, everythings pressured. So if you breathe through certain things, you are able to see clearer. You really are,” said Tameka Lawson, executive director of the nonprofit group. M. Spencer Green/The Associated Press
