Yoga Behind Bars is a Seattle based, volunteer powered nonprofit that offers incarcerated people—men, women and youth—the transformative power of yoga as a tool for self-awareness, healing, and a pathway to freedom.
We envision a society where all people are safe, healthy and free.
We advocate that prisons and jails can be places of effective, deep healing. Through our cost-effective in-prison yoga programs we are working to create this reality.
We aspire to bring the best possible yoga and meditation classes to all incarcerated adults and youth in Washington State and beyond. At Yoga Behind Bars we believe in the ripple effect and innate goodness. Every student has a family waiting outside. On the day they re-enter civil society, they will have tools to help them succeed instead of recede. Our service facilitates social change from within.
We spread awareness, light and hope.
