OUR VISION

We’re Reimagining The Criminal Justice System

We’re reimagining the criminal justice system, we envision a world where all communities are healthy and thriving, where people feel safe, connected, and valued. Our work is about more than just yoga. We open doors to self-understanding, resilience and transformation. We advocate for restorative justice solutions, holistic re-entry services, and the removal of other barriers that prevent formerly incarcerated people to rebuild their lives upon release. We work with the state corrections leadership to create new cultural opportunities within the system, including yoga classes for prison staff and yoga teacher trainings for inmates.

OUR VALUES

We live these values on and off the mat, behind bars and behind desks

Integrity

We act with honesty and transparency.


Love

We believe in love as the most powerful and affirming force for change, love wins.


Excellence

We are committed to be the best we can be. We learn, grow, and evolve.


Social Justice

We believe each of us has the capacity to change the world if given the resources to do so.

We embody and practice antiracist values as an organization and leverage our resources and networks to promote these values.


Community

We are dedicated to building thriving and diverse communities. We work together.
