NIROGA OFFERS THE FOLLOWING PROGRAMS IN JUVENILE DETENTION FACILITIES, JAILS, AND TRANSITION CENTERS:
30 – 75 minute Dynamic Mindfulness classes
Mindful yoga sessions, combining  movement,  breathwork, and meditation are led by Niroga’s Yoga Corps teachers.  Yoga mats and props are used.   Classes can be more physical, satisfying P.E. requirements, and also include extension activities for stress resilience, self awareness, self-control, and building healthy relationships.
Day-long immersions
For students already familiar with dynamic mindfulness from our hourly classes, our day-long immersions include a variety of activities, including role-playing, art, games, yoga, breathwork, and mindfulness. This all day workshop teaches mindfulness practices to better manage emotions, to adopt healthy habits, and to build community and support among peers.
