Books

Every day we get many requests from prisoners and prison staff asking how to start meditation and yoga.

A prison cell can be an ideal environment in which to practise. We have produced a range of books to guide and encourage prisoners with a practice which is simple, effective and life-changing.

Our books and CD are given out freely to those in prison. We aim to respond within two weeks of receiving a request. We tailor the packs we send out according to literacy level and how much the prisoner enjoys reading. They would normally contain a book explaining how to start a daily yoga and meditation practice, a CD talking a prisoner through a yoga, relaxation and meditation session and a copy of our most recent newsletter.

Each pack includes a personally written letter offering individual support via correspondence if needed. This degree of support has been at the heart of our work for the past 20 years. During 2015, we sent out 2,496 packs of books and CDs.

Yoga and meditation in a prison cell
Yours were the first books Iíve ever read all the way through. Unreal for me. They have changed the way I think and feel. I feel like Iíve got more control over my feelings and I can focus more, sleep better and see people and things in a different light.
