Provides weekly trauma-informed mindfulness classes at York Correctional Institute and Path of Freedom classes at Cheshire Correctional Institution. Also developing curriculum for working with people recently released from prison in the New Haven, CT area.
Transformation Yoga Project provides healing alternatives to the effects of mass incarceration on the individual, communal and systemic levels. Through the lens of Transformative Justice, our trauma sensitive, mindfulness based approach extends to those who are incarcerated, in reentry, in communities disproportionately affected by incarceration, and to those working within the justice system. We envision a world where all people have the opportunity to discover the tools to heal from trauma and to create a positive impact in their communities.
