It is wonderful that Yoga is continuing to gain popularity as a resource for healing in the black community, from celebrities to inmates. According to TMZ.com, Hollywood star Wesley Snipes requested Yoga Mats to teach other inmates the benefits during his time in prison.
Here is the picture that TMZ put up, It is obviously Wesley’s head on another person’s body. I feel this picture does not give Wesley the dignity he deserves for taking the practice of Yoga to his fellow inmates in jail.
THE BENEFITS OF YOGA FOR PRISON / JAIL INMATES
I wanted to make sure that you all understand the tremendous benefits that Mr. Snipes is providing to his fellow inmates. This description comes from Yogamag.net
Yoga is being taught in many prisons around the world for a variety of reasons: for the management of stress, for general health and the alleviation of different physical problems, but mostly as a method to correct and reform the criminal personality. The latter is finding more recognition and acceptance from governments and prison authorities
Recently I wrote about Russell Simmons who also shares the benefits of Yoga with his book “Super Rich” here is the link to learn more : Russell Simmons “Super Rich” Book Review.
