Hyderabad: Popular Yoga trainer Manasi Gulati conducted a yoga workshop ‘Self Transformation’ for prisoners of Cherlapally jail here on Tuesday. Over 1500 prisoners participated in the workshop at the jail, which is one of the biggest prisons in Asia.

“My aim is to achieve personal transformation of each prisoner through Yoga. I have been practicing Yoga for the last 19 years,” said Ms. Gulati.

The objective was to spread the message of healthy living to cope up with stress and high pressure of work. A yoga program was conducted at Tihar Jail early this year and many prisoners benefited from yoga and mindfulness to confront some behavioral issues, she informed.
