Josefin, what’s this about you doing yoga in Prison?

When I heard about Josefin being in a Swedish prison, i thought that can’t be right, not our sweet bollywood dancing energy power house. Then I found out more and it all made sense, Josefin is taking yoga to the prisoners. I love to see yoga used in these inspiring ways and I had to ask her to tell us about it.
