Deliver Yoga to 10,000 Prisoners

Bring the Transformational Value of Yoga to Prison

Since early 2010, Prison Yoga Project's illustrated manual for prisoners, Yoga A Path for Healing and Recovery, has been sent at no cost to more than 6,500 prisoners. It costs on average $5 to print and send a book. We could easily increase demand for 3,000-4,000 books in the next year alone. Send a prisoner a book, buy one for yourself, or do both.

"What I received from the yoga classes is an avenue to live a life that is, well, so much more alive. I've learned that I can live in the present with an awareness I never felt possible and lead a life that is health, grounded and true." -Prison Yoga Project Incarcerated Student
