Yoga and Freedom: The Prison Yoga Project
Thursday, April 16, 2015
The practice of yoga frees us. Physical poses help release patterns of tension, while meditation and present-moment awareness help free us from the prison of our minds. These benefits apply to everyone, even those in the most trying circumstances. James Fox, author of Prison Yoga Project: A Path for Healing and Recovery, has been teaching yoga twice a week at San Quentin Prison for the past 13 years. James has also trained more than 800 yoga teachers, with many of these currently teaching in more than 75 jails, prisons, and/or recovery centers. James Fox joins the Yoga Hour’s cohost, Laurel Trujillo, M.D., in a conversation about the many ways yoga contributes to our freedom.
