This class will be an open level vinyasa flow, taught to honor and raise funding to support the incarcerated population in Washington state. To benefit the Yoga Behind Bars programs that provide a yoga practice to prisoners the suggested donation for this class is $20 to help us reach our studio goal of $400. Please spread the word and join us for this Thanksgiving-eve practice to support a great cause.
Gratitude in Motion is Yoga Behind Bars’ largest community benefit event, with 30+ studios participating all over the Puget Sound region. Now in its 6th year, Gratitude in Motion is a beautiful celebration of generosity, hope, and community. All proceeds benefit Yoga Behind Bars.
Yoga Behind Bars (YBB) is Washington State’s only nonprofit organization offering yoga and meditation classes to thousands of men, women and youth in prisons, jails and detention centers. Starting with one yoga teacher in one facility in 2008, today a team of 50+ yoga instructors teach 25 classes a week in 12 correctional facilities in the greater Puget Sound region, sharing proven tools that promote health and self-awareness. Yoga Behind Bars believes in the ripple effect and innate goodness. Every student has a community waiting outside. On the day they re-integrate with society, they will have tools to help them succeed instead of recede.
