I have just returned from 2 months of delicious family holiday time in Canada and it’s lovely to be back in Canberra just in time for Spring.  While I was away I received a request from two prison inmates for some help in their developing yoga practice.  They wanted some recommendations for books and resources, as they didn’t have access to a teacher and wished to further their study and practice.  So, I took the question to our Trinity graduate family and they responded with some great recommendations and I thought I’d share it with you.  There are so many resources available now, but it’s nice to hear what other people are finding helpful.  If you have a resource that you’d like to recommend, please post it to our Facebook Page so we can all benefit!
