THE PRISON PHOENIX TRUST
The Prison Phoenix Trust believes that everyone deserves a fresh start. We help prisoners towards that start by providing them with the materials and on going support to set up and continue a daily practice of yoga and meditation.
“Meditation is going to be the key. I often sit quietly and think of the effects of my actions on others, and what I must do to repay those whom I’ve hurt so much.”
(A prisoner – HMP Parkhurst)
We help prisoners by: Training qualified yoga teachers for prison and help establishing weekly prison classes for prisoners and staff. We have classes in over half of British and Irish prisons. Sending free books and CDs out to prisoners who request them. We send over 5,000 of these a year.
The work of the Trust is entirely dependent on the generosity of people who believe inmates can discover a different way of seeing themselves and the world, through the simple practice of sitting in silence each day, and through yoga. For more information on how to donate, visit theppt.org.uk
Even a small donation makes a big difference.
