Right from the beginning the inmates told me they never felt such peace and relaxation as they do after a class.
Gilbert, AZ (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
Few people watching the hit show "Orange is the New Black" could imagine themselves inside a women's prison. Dahn Yoga volunteer instructor, Ann M. Torruellas, did that and more when she envisioned teaching yoga and meditation to women housed in Maximum Security at the Arizona State Prison Complex - Perryville.
Ann's story was recently featured in the April issue of Dahn Yoga's community newsletter and is now online. In her story, Torruellas gives readers a glimpse inside the classes she teaches and how Dahn Yoga is changing prison life for some of the inmates:
“Right from the beginning the inmates told me they never felt such peace and relaxation as they do after a class.” She adds, “When I teach, I stress that the peace the students are finding comes from within.”
