freedom behind bars

Bars open, opens another way of understanding what is being imprisoned.
Prison made of walls and gates, holds individual physical freedom as we understand it, but there is another kind of freedom: that of the mind, body, and spirit.
Mind is dam of our thoughts and our conception of the world, the body is prisoner of tensions, rigidity and inflexibility.
The practice of yoga, through movement, breathing and meditation, leads us to free ourselves from this internal prison and open us to change, personal transformation.

In 2010 the prisons of Catalunya open their doors to the NGO World Prem to launch program breathes joy, offering free yoga classes to people without resources and social exclusion through volunteer teachers seeking to offer inmates inspiration for change. Since there are many who have lived this experience.
