The prisoners at Groenpunt Maximum Security prison in Free State province are among the most violent in South Africa. They have raped, murdered, smuggled drugs or abused children. Many are HIV-positive and can expect to die in jail. Inside prison their anger boils over and violence is common. But a new programme of yoga lessons is helping inmates to discover ways to calm themselves and take a more positive look at their lives, even if they never get out from behind bars.

Everybody please please please watch the video. It’s beautiful.
