Topic: Health & Wellness / Benefits of Yoga

I work in a jail that houses 360 male and female(capacity0, and have responsibility for the JDC and the best part of my work week, is that I also teach Hatha Yoga and have for the past seven years. I was fortunate enough to be a certified Yoga teacher from jump, and then the county assisted in my attending a training in Chicago; The Prison Yoga Project with James Fox. James started in San Quentin about 17 years ago, check out the site for details. Anyway i am not here to plug the PYP, just to say I have experienced directly the transformation in many men and women.
Yoga isn’t about touching your toes, its about your own journey, getting in touch with yourself, learning about where you stop, how emotion pops up and how you handle it, how to calm yourself, how to feel good about yourself, how to see and facilitate transformation in yourself and others, in addition to helping with sleep, flexibility and strength..
I get so very much more from my guys than they ever give me. I discover that place that acknowledges their crime and sees their human side.
Namaste
