We offer yoga and meditation classes to men, women and youth behind bars every day, giving our students the opportunity for rehabilitation, growth and healing.

Our students experience calm, inner peace and a sense of self-worth.

Scientific research is confirming what we see every day in our classes: yoga and meditation are powerful tools for restoring the connection between mind, heart and body. We want to be part of the solution to end mass incarceration by sharing these empowering tools to help our students succeed when they return to our communities.
