The value of stretches: Yoga in Prisons

To coincide with the launch of a new book: Peace Inside: A Prisoners Guide to Meditation, its editor, Sam Settle, was interviewed on BBC 4's 'All in the Mind' here. The piece starts at 10.20 minutes into the programme.

But like any good account it is suitable for all - inside or out under any number of conditions of our 'imprisonment'!
