Type of Event
- Community Event
This donation-based class supports Yoga Makes a Change, an annual fundraiser for the Prison Yoga Project. We will practice with a purpose in a gentle flow as we connect to one another in our community and support others. The practice will be grounding and connective.
We’re helping incarcerated men and women to build a better life through the Prison Yoga Project’s program of trauma-informed yoga, taught as a mindfulness practice. The practice helps students to restore the connection between their mind, body and heart, experience self-compassion and empathy for others, and take responsibility for their actions. They can also begin to change trauma-induced unconscious behavioral patterns and develop skills for impulse control, reducing the likelihood that they will return to jail.
