Jeremy Irons connects with Prison Yoga program


Actor Jeremy Irons says his work as an actor has enabled him to connect with the prisoners he wants to help as part of a program that encourages inmates to meditate and practice yoga.
The actor is involved in Freeing the Human Spirit, a program that helps prisoners deal with their anger and stay out of jail through the practice of yoga and meditation.

“When you’re banged up in prison, as Paris Hilton will find out, I suppose, you’re stuck in a cell on your own, a very negative experience,” Irons says. “But if you can turn that cell into an ashram, if you can learn to meditate and do yoga, exercise your mind and exercise your body — then it becomes a positive experience.”
