Event Navigation

Are you ready to bring a light into every cell?

Join Yoga Behind Bars for the most comprehensive training available for teaching in prisons and in other vulnerable communities. Learn effective tools to bring trauma-informed yoga into prisons and other settings and find out how you can use yoga and meditation to make a difference in the world.

When you teach for Yoga Behind Bars, you build a bridge between two worlds. It is an experience that will change your life and the lives of your students. Teaching yoga in a prison environment is undeniably challenging and also incredibly rewarding. Because of this, we encourage applicants who have a strong sense of commitment, skill, and capacity for compassion.

Dates: October 28-30

Location: Namaste Studio, Shoreline, WA

Cost: $325 early bird pricing

What you can expect:

  • A safe space for self-exploration, growth, and community building
  • Thorough preparation to offer yoga and meditation based tools in prison or any other setting to foster connection, safety, and healing
  • Training on social justice and skills for working in environments of suffering/trauma in a sustainable and just way
  • Inspiration and community
  • The 60+ page Yoga Behind Bars manual
