Sabrina Seronello: How We Serve Incarcerated Veterans

After the active duty portion of her commitment to the Air Force was up in March 2006, Sabrina Seronello was introduced to the practice that would help positively change her life, and the lives of others. In the latest interview for our yoga service series on The Huffington Post, Executive Director Rob Schware talks with Sabrina about the significance of her own practice, as well as her work with the Prison Yoga Project at San Quentin State Prison, where she teaches yoga to incarcerated veterans.

“In reality I have been helped more than I am helping them. I can’t begin to explain the amount of healing that I have experienced since I started going inside San Quentin. I always leave there thinking, wow, that’s what it’s all about–offering yoga to people who truly need it.” — Sabrina Seronello
