There is a range of yoga and meditation worksheets you or prison staff can now download from this website to help prisoners cope with the currently increased hours in cell. Please phone us for the password on 01865 512 521.
If you are a yoga teacher not able to go into prison to teach at the moment, these handouts are one way to continue to support your yoga students and others who might appreciate your guidance. Prisoners appreciate a sense of continuity and not being forgotten. Please liaise with any staff members who you have worked with to request their help in distributing these documents.

They are often impressed by how quickly their prisoner students experience benefits, and by their appreciation of the practice. For many teachers, prison classes offer a chance to deepen their understanding of yoga, by offering it at the margins of society.
