Inmates to be certified yoga instructors

Inmates from the Bomana Juvenile Centre can now be trained as certified yoga instructors, as equally as youth participating outside of the prison.

This opportunity has come four years after the introduction of yoga inside the prison walls.

Yu Yet PNG, a yoga body in PNG introduced the Bomana prison project, where a group of yogis visit the prison every Friday for yoga classes.

“I have been trying to train inmates and now, finally, the commander has given the green light,” said Fazilah Bazari – yoga instructor and founder.

Now, she says five inmates will be trained equally as the youth outside the prison and have the chance to teach in prison and be able to generate income while still in prison.

“This hasn’t been done before,” she said.
