“Yoga and its emphasis on the power of a single breath has promoted for me a respect for life and a profound realisation of the destructive force of violence.”
From humble beginnings and a passion for karma-yoga (giving back) Yoga on the Inside was born.
The opportunity and need to make yoga accessible to those members of our society who are often seen as underserving, is what had driven me (Sonia) to bring this trauma-informed yoga practice to this incarcerated population of individuals. The NEIS Program (run via Sarina Russo) is what helped launch this passion-project of mine, along with the never-waivering support from the international Prison Yoga Project.
Providing prisoners with a means and an opportunity to learn about compassion to themselves and to others is at the heart of what we are able to achieve with this program.
