Prison Yoga Practice has employable people available to you!

happy worker hey yoga manMy yoga students at the minimum security prison are generally nearing the end of their sentences and most work outside the facility during the day.  As discussed elsewhere on the blog, the dedicated yoga students have a much lower reincarceration rate than other inmates.  We have a study on this and Pashupati Steve Landau published a paper with the results.

I am currently helping one of my students apply to jobs.  A job for an outside employer is essential to success for these men.  Many jobs are not available to them.  This man is a qualified welder.  He has a college degree with honors from Shaw University.  He has work experience for an outside employer in a call center.  Any help you can give in suggesting places that are willing to hire a worker who is reliable and with a proven work record such as this man, please contact me on the blog or at

Work site should be in Wake County and on a bus line would be helpful.  Employer must have workman’s compensation insurance.  There is a tax break available from the State of NC for hiring this worker and he will provide the necessary paperwork at the interview.

I will be able to provide you with another qualified welder in November if all goes well.
