PRACTICAL YOGA OUTREACH TRAINING TO SERVE INCARCERATED COMMUNITIES
http://www.prisonyoga.com/ NOVEMBER 6-7, 2010
The Prison Yoga Project, Yoga Activist.org, and the Give Back Yoga Foundation are offering a special training for yoga teachers and students interested in working with the incarcerated.
James Fox, the founder and director of PYP, will lead the training drawing on his years of experience teaching yoga and meditation to incarcerated youth and adults including 8 years at San Quentin Prison.
This two-day training will include a wealth of pragmatic information about working with the incarcerated in their unique social/cultural environment, strategies for establishing yoga programs in prisons, and hands on yoga instruction in specific asana, pranayama and meditation practices that have been proven effective with prisoners. “Yoga: A Path for Healing and Recovery,” an illustrated instruction manual for prisoners written by Mr. Fox, will be provided with the training along with other pertinent materials.
