About us

Yoga Behind Bars (YBB) is an innovative nonprofit offering yoga and meditation classes in prisons, jails and detention centers. Currently a team of 40 yoga instructors teach 25 classes a week in ten correctional facilities in the greater Puget Sound region, sharing accessible and effective mind-body health interventions and tools with thousands of incarcerated youth and adults.


We envision a world where: …all people have tools and opportunity for healing and positive transformation in their lives. …all incarcerated people in Washington State and beyond have access to yoga and meditation instruction. …all formerly incarcerated people are prepared to succeed when they re-enter our communities. …broad social and systemic improvements result from the work we do.
