Gratitude in Motion: take a yoga class in support of Yoga Behind Bars

Nov 26, 2015

Event Navigation


Every Thanksgiving, Yoga Behind Bars partners with dozens of studios to present Gratitude in Motion, a series of donation yoga classes. It is our largest community event of the year, raising critical funds for our programs in prisons. 100% of the proceeds support our programs behind bars—this means that your participation has the power to impact people living behind bars on a daily basis. $20+ is the suggested donation.

Class dates and times vary. Check out our full list of participating studio dates and times on our website!

As a yogi, you understand the deeply healing and empowering effects of a yoga and meditation practice. Now imagine what that practice can do for someone in prison…What if our prisons and jails were places of effective, deep healing? What if our community members emerged from their time behind bars filled with self-love, understanding, and compassion? These are the driving questions behind the work of Yoga Behind Bars.

Yoga Behind Bars has a team of 50+ yoga instructors teaching 25 classes a week in 12 correctional facilities in Washington State. And we are excited to announce that we recently launched a teacher training program for incarcerated men. That’s right – 13 guys from 5 WA prisons are currently being trained so that when they return to their home facilities, they can teach yoga to their peers! We are certainly up to big things, but the demand for our classes and trainings are still much greater than we can currently meet. We can’t do this work alone.

We would like to invite you to participate in our 6th annual Gratitude in Motion so we can say “yes” to more classes and trainings behind bars!
