This online training is an evolution of the popular in-person weekend training we have offered beginning in 2010. Since that time, more than 3,000 people have attended one of our training programs. Many have become facilitators leading yoga practices with incarcerated men, women, and youth; some have even gone on to start yoga service programs of their own. We've had lawyers, therapists, social workers, formerly incarcerated people, law enforcement officers, and others working in prisons and jails attend our training.
This training provides a solid foundation for understanding the necessity of addressing trauma as a primary underlying force behind incarceration and the rationale for body-based mindfulness practices, such as yoga, to address that trauma.
