We train our teachers in issues specific to working with offenders: professional boundaries, security, the stresses of prison staff, and the kind of yoga and meditation most effective in helping prisoners strengthen hope and motivation. The training includes a 5-day residential course, grounding teachers in these issues and keeping them connected to a larger network, vital to preventing burnout.
Our teachers have a deep-rooted, internalised motivation strengthened by their own practice, which sustains them through the challenges of prison. They modify their teaching to keep students physically safe.
Offenders need not subscribe to any belief system: the practice can be taken up by people of any faith or none.
