Selected Quotes from Prisoners Requesting Books

"I am very interested in doing yoga. I know that it’s meant for me to start since I just got your offer. Could you please RUSH me my own copy so I can get started right away on my path for healing and recovery. Thank you so much for this great offer for all incarcerated people that want a better and healthier life." L.M., Texas Dept. of Corrections, Riverside Unit, Gatesville, Texas

"I’ve done yoga since I was a child. I currently teach it to the therapeutic community (yes horribly I am an inmate though I should not be). Your book sounds right on point with the yogic principles I try to share in my classes." E.N., Maryland Correctional Institute for Women, Jessup, Maryland

"Please let me thank everyone at the Prison Yoga Project. Organizations like yours are few and far between and I wish there were more caring people like yourselves. Thank you for your services." K.P., Washington Correction Center, Shelton, Washington

"Your publication helps tremendously – emotionally, mentally and most of all spiritually. Thank you so much for looking after our forgotten souls." D.C., California State Prison, Delano, California

"I want you to know that you are doing a service that is a boon to society. It is incredibly selfless, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Om Mani Padme Hum." N.H., Virginia State Prison, Pocahontas, Virginia
