(Book) Yoga: A Path for Healing and Recovery

Prison Yoga Project founder and director James Fox presents Yoga: A Path for Healing and Recovery as a resource meant to support the personal growth, self-healing, and yoga practice of incarcerated citizens. Since its first publication in 2010, some 17,000 copies have been shipped free of charge to prisoners in nearly every state in the US, and abroad.

Offering a methodology developed by James Fox after nearly two decades of teaching yoga in San Quentin Prison in California, Yoga: A Path for Healing and Recovery has been lauded by yoga teachers and practitioners worldwide for its clear, concise, and effective introduction to pranayama, asana, and mindfulness techniques as a means for healing the traumas and addictions that lead to incarceration.

There are four ways to purchase:

  • Buy a book for a prisoner--someone specific or as an anonymous gift
  • Buy a book for yourself
  • Buy two books at the same time, one for yourself and one to send to a prisoner--someone specific or as an anonymous gift
  • Buy a book for yourself for shipment overseas (we can't ship to prisoners overseas).


*If ordering a book to send to a prisoner, please be aware of the following:
-- All mailing addresses must include the prisoner’s inmate ID number
-- We can only ship books to prisoners, no DVDs
-- Due to prison regulations we are unable to send additional materials with a book. Therefore, any personalized notes included with your order will not reach its intended recipient. If you wish for a prisoner to know who sent them a book, you will need to mail a separate correspondence.
