Yoga in prisons: Rehabilitation and Rehumanization

 

posted by Focused on November 28, 2011 @ 4:07 pm in MEDIA

What can yoga do for an environment where violence and anger dominate? One of the first benefits of yoga is the sense of peace that it provides to those who practice it. Time Magazine recently produced an informative report about a yoga teacher and the effects of his class on some inmates within the San Quentin prison in California. Like many prisons around the world, San Quentin is overcrowded and is a hotbed of violence. Please watch the video below.

 

Are you aware of similar projects in Jamaica? Yoga helps to 'rehumanize' people. If prison is to rehabilitate people (a task at which it has been failing) then activities like yoga must be made mandatory.
