Punishing people through mass incarceration isn’t making our communities safer, it’s just making people suffer. We advocate for a different approach to getting ‘tough on crime’ and it starts with compassion.
Most incarcerated people have a history of complex, interpersonal trauma. Unless this unresolved trauma is addressed the tendency to re-offend will remain.
Practice with Compassion
Beyond offering yoga, our teachers show up without fear and without judgement, offering a healing human connection.
Books for Prisoners
Since 2010 we have sent more than 26,000 copies of "Yoga: a Path for Healing and Recovery" by request, free-of-charge.
Prison Reform in Action
Through example, advocacy, and consultation we assist prisons, governmental agencies, private entities, and individuals in establishing trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness programs.
Informed Training Programs
Our trainings are informed by our understanding of the unique socio-cultural environment of incarceration, social justice issues, and the impact of trauma on the lives of prisoners.
