Prison Phoenix Trust Ireland

Prison Phoenix Trust Ireland was set up in 2003 following many letters from prisoners in Ireland and Nothern Ireland asking for yoga classes.

Through our Irish Coordinator, Prison Phoenix Trust Ireland co-ordinates and brings together the experiences of teachers working in custodial institutions all over Ireland. There are currently 29 regular yoga classes in 10 of the prisons in Northern Ireland and the Republic. Five of these are for prison staff.

Yoga and meditation in a prison cell
When I was in HMP Maghaberry I started doing yoga once a week.  The teacher Mary was great at teaching me the basics.  Before I came to Magilligan, I got your book Freeing the Spirit and your CD and for a few months now I have been using them.  Honestly, itís the best thing I have discovered.  I am a much calmer person as well as being more flexible.  My family have noticed the difference in me too.
