“Aloha!” It’s one of those words with layers of meaning and conveys an understanding of the interconnectedness of all things, similar to the Sanskrit word “Namaste.”
Our friend at the Maui County Correctional Center writes, “Yoga has also shown me how to stop, take deep breaths, and to let go of all the negative, and bring in all the positive….” These are the important transformational life-skills we bring to our students.
We hope these skills will help her feel a lot more Aloha in her future life. When we feel that interconnectedness, we’ve got a lot better chance of shifting from the negative to the positive. Mahalo, Friend!
Aloha Prison Yoga Project,
Thank you for the yoga curriculum you have offered the females in the dorms at Maui County Correctional Center. I am very excited to see what my future will be holding for me as I will be continuing my yoga practice. Yoga practice has helped my body let go of the pain from a motorcycle accident, multiple car accidents and from sports as a child. Yoga has also shown me how to stop, take deep breaths and to let go of all the negative and bring in all the positive, because us females really need positive surrounding us at this time!
Mahalo and Sincerely,
