Our classes help incarcerated men, women and teens connect more deeply with themselves and others, inviting self-reflection, care, and compassion. Our students acquire tools to healthfully cope with the stress and anxiety they experience while incarcerated and face upon release. The transformation can be profound. Whether after taking just one class or participating for months, our students report feeling calmer, healthier, happier and more at peace.
YBB’s Yoga Teacher Training for prisoners is currently underway at Stafford Creek Corrections Center!
Offering a Yoga Teacher Training to prisoners has been a YBB dream for many years. We’ve designed a program that is inspiring our students to embody yoga in their own lives, while also providing them with the skills necessary to teach yoga–as certified teachers– in their facility and beyond.
Special thanks to Sarahjoy Marsh from Daya Foundation for valuable input as we developed our curriculum.
