In this training you will receive an introduction to Prison Yoga Project’s unique approach to trauma-informed, mindfulness-based yoga. This approach is specifically tailored to maximize the healing benefits for symptoms of trauma and other common mental health issues affecting incarcerated people. You'll explore the pathways and practical considerations for offering these practices in the unique socio-cultural environment of incarceration, including interfacing with staff and prisoners.
Anyone interested in creating a more humane and effective criminal justice system should take this training: therapists, social workers, lawyers, correctional officers, administrators, and, especially, yoga teachers who are ready to take their practice into the realm of service.
This workshop qualifies for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) with Yoga Alliance for RYTs.
