Reaching 10,000 Veterans Through Yoga

 

The Human Kindness Foundation's Spring 2013 Newsletter came out. It is basically a tribute 
to the life of Bo Lozoff. The last page has a notice for the book Yoga, A Path For Healing and Recovery.
Author James Fox went to the post office to pick up his mail and had over 1,000 requests for these books with
letters post marked from March 28th to April 5th, 2013. That's one week alone!
Help us reach 10,000 prisoners with this resource guide. It is prized among prisoners. With donor support over 7,000 copies have been sent free to prisoners to help them start or continue their practices inside.
The Prison Yoga Project has created a mindfulness yoga program to specifically address the trauma-related issues of prisoners in general but also imprisoned veterans that has the potential for broad application in state and federal prisons.
