Synopsis

Bound to be Free: The Liberating Power of Prison Yoga illustrates how yoga can be and is being used in prisons as a powerful method of prisoner reform and rehabilitation. The book is grounded in the Integral Yoga teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda, who was a renowned yoga master, a spiritual guide to thousands of people worldwide, and one of the first yoga teachers to bring the timeless teachings of yoga into U.S. prisons. Through talks that Swami Satchidananda gave in several prisons, from interviews with other yoga teachers who have taught and are teaching in prisons, with a look at some highly successful prison yoga programs that are being carried out in the United States and abroad, and with personal stories of prisoners whose study and practice of yoga has brought peace and self-transformation, Bound to be Free offers a wide-ranging view of the benefits of yoga to incarcerated populations and demonstrates how those benefits impact society in general.
