Yoga Practices for Everyday Life from a Prison Yoga Practice

“Yoga and meditation in the Modular Building,” and again, “Yoga and meditation in the Modular Building.”

I teach yoga in the prisons. Imagine walking into “the yard,” and here comes one of these tough-looking people who says “Namaskar,” and makes the prayerful gesture of touching his forehead and heart. The first time it happened, I was very surprised, and was brought to full presence of the here and now. I still experience this feeling of presence, although the surprise has left me. Now it just feels good!

This book grew out of the yoga classes I teach at Wake Correctional Center in Raleigh, North Carolina. The class includes hatha yoga asanas. This book has a range of yoga basics, meditation and attention and awareness practices suitable for any beginning yoga class.
