We are a volunteer-led nonprofit that uses the power of yoga to create safer communities by sharing tools that work. Our students are inspiring men, women and youth behind bars. Our certified teachers offer opportunities for healing and transformation, and encourage a shift for the whole person. Physical freedom may not be possible, but inner freedom is.
At Yoga Behind Bars we believe in the ripple effect. Every student has a family and community waiting outside. On the day they re-enter civil society, they will have tools to help them succeed instead of recede.
How it Works:
As a leader in our field, we create integrated yoga programs, in collaboration with staff, that serve the specific needs of our students and empower them to take responsibility for their own well-being.We train all of our volunteer teachers to work with incarcerated and at-risk populations. Currently, we offer 38 weekly classes in 7 different facilities in Western Washington.
