Yoga study on 14 groups of male inmates over 3 years, showed that yoga classes help reduce child abuse and make these guys better dads.
I remember when I began studying yoga after the Beetles came back from India hanging with the Maharishi, we were called nuts and losers. Most people assumed if you did yoga, you did drugs. They assumed if you ate nuts and berries, you did drugs and made love with swingers. But it has all come to pass.
This program, called “Fit Fathers, Successful Families, Inside and Out”, shows that the body, mind and spirit are designed to heal. Even in jail.
This shows the power of mindfulness. When practiced.
