What We Do
We deliver courses on the mindfulness-based practice, iRest meditation, to HMPPS residents and staff in UK prisons.
iRest Yoga Nidra is approved by the US military as a complementary approach for dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is an evidence-informed approach, tested in more than 30 studies, most of which were experimental trials
with a wide range of populations.

Our Lead Instructor, Paul Collins, has more than eight years’ experience working with prison populations, delivering meditation and trauma-sensitive yoga and providing one-to-one sessions with residentss and staff.

“I was at my wits' end and this yoga was my last resort … it's done more for me and my mental health in the short time I've been going than the prison has as a whole in the months I've been in.”
