Practicing Yoga in Prison is Reshaping the Lives of Inmates
Yoga Behind Bars is one of the organizations teaching yoga to inmates. Prison S.M.A.R.T is another organization helping inmates transform and find inner peace through yoga and meditation, that I've worked with in the past. The inner transformations I heard prisoners sharing about after going deep into meditation for the first time, were mind blowing and cracked my heart wide open. It really taught me that no matter what a person has done in their life -- people are good and kind on the inside. And when they are not stressed out, and taught how to cultivate peace in their mind and spirit, that natural goodness is allowed to blossom and shine.
