Anneke Lucas is the director of Prison Yoga Project in New York. She currently teaches yoga and meditation at six facilities, to both male and female inmates, and places trained yoga instructors in prisons, jails and re-entry facilities. Serving in prisons synthesizes Anneke’s experiences with psycho-therapy, meditation and ashtanga yoga, bringing physical therapy, mindful awareness and peace to those most receptive to its benefits. Anneke graduated from the American Film Institute as a screenwriter and published a novel in her home country Belgium. She is currently working on a memoir about her childhood spent in circumstances as chaotic, violent and abusive as in any prison.
