About Us

The Prison Phoenix Trust encourages prisoners in their spiritual lives through meditation and yoga, working with silence and the breath.



We offer individual support to prisoners and prison staff through teaching, correspondence, books and newsletters. People of any faith or no faith can benefit. We honour all religions. 

The Prison Phoenix Trust was registered as a charity in 1988. We work all over the UK and The Republic of Ireland in prisons, young offender institutions, immigration removal centres, secure hospitals and probation hostels.

A key aspect of our work is training and supporting qualified yoga teachers to teach in prison and other secure conditions.

Our Annual Report and Accounts can be viewed here.

Yoga and meditation in a prison cell

Meditation is going to be the key. I often sit quietly and think of the effects of my actions on others, and what I must do to repay those whom Iíve hurt so much.
