Promote peace and positive behaviour.
Creating a peaceful environment through yoga and meditation that transforms the lives of those within the criminal justice system.
We teach skills that promote healing, inspire personal transformation and positivity during imprisonment to promote rehabilitation upon release.
Bring Yoga to Prisons
Volunteers teach to yoga in prison from one location at Athi River Men Prison once a week to Machakos Womens Prison once a week and Lang'ata Womens Maximum Prison thrice a week with each of these classes reaching 40 to 60 students per class!
Our goal is to continue to expand by adding prison yoga programs to 3 more prisons in 2018 and do a 200 hrs teacher training behind bars in Kenya with 25 inmates.
Empower & uplift.
We believe that sustainable social change can best be led by the people who most need the change.
Right now, we are teaching yoga in prisons in Kenya.
We teach yoga at Athi River Mens Prison, Machakos Womens Prison & Lang'ata Womens Maximum Prison
Our volunteers are selflessly generous with their time and energy.
We started this mission 2 years ago. Every week we teach 240 prisoners and the number is growing.
The prison is made up of 75% young people aged 18 to 35. A majority of the persons in the prison have low levels of education. For any offender their status quo in society automatically changes once they are imprisoned. They are considered as ‘outcasts’ or ‘outlaws’. The reality after release is that life is much harder than it was before imprisonment. The basics like finding and retaining a job, finding a safe place to live or being reunited with their families becomes cumbersome tasks. This usually leads to high recidivism (persons becoming repeat offenders.)
