Prison yoga seems to be a subtopic here. Perhaps it reflects that we’re all imprisoned in the maya of this world and our roundabout on the karmic wheel.

Apparently there are quite a few inmates on death row that practice yoga of some kind, but, at this point, Tony is the only one who is proficient enough to do the complete primary series with all of the vinyasas. A couple of Tony’s “brothers on the row” have also started to practice ashtanga yoga, and he has been mentoring them to some extent. I told Tony to feel free to write me with any questions about the practice and he responded with one about the proper execution (maybe that’s the wrong word) of garbha pindasana.

Tony warned me that his “brothers on the row” would be writing me with their questions as well, and ended his letter with a P.S. that he saw an article by me in the June issue of the Yoga Journal on Suryanamaskara C, which he plans to start incorporating into his practice.
