Yoga teachers have been offering yoga and meditation in Scottish prisons for longer than the Prison Phoenix Trust has been established: over 30 years! This day is a chance for teachers currently working in prison – and those interested in finding out more – to discuss the approaches that prisoners have said are most useful in helping them discover a deep sense of freedom and renewal. We’ll look at how we can best use that feedback from prisoners as we go in to teach our prison classes each week, and examine other principles of working with prisons which help successfully embed yoga into a prison’s regime. Finally, we will practise meditation and yoga together and have ample time to hear from each other how our classes in prison are going. This day is for teachers from Scotland, the north of England and further afield.
