Yoga can be the antidote to violence. With that message, Rolston Nelson, the acting Chief Justice of the Caribbean Court of Justice, has urged the Trinidad Ministry of Education to introduce yoga in the school curriculum. Delivering the keynote address at the launch of Yoga Day held at Trinidad Hilton Hotel, Nelson said yoga can curb violence and indiscipline in the schools. Referring to incidents of crime, Nelson said: “If benefit of Yoga spreads among the population then we would be living in a much more humane and gentle society. I look forward to the Ministry of Education paying more attention to the science of Yoga.”
