Alexander Medin

Alexander Medin has been a yoga instructor for 17 years. In 2012, he started yoga exercises for prisoners and later for drug addicts. Alexander used to be a boxer, and “Back in the ring” is a symbol of the classic boxer making a comeback – something which requires effort and strength. It also symbolize returning to the society as a resource and not as a burden. “I wanted them to find dignity again” Alexander says about the people he helped.
