Support Yoga Trainings in Prisons!
Creating Teachers on the Inside
DAYA Foundation is excited to announce that Coffee Creek Correctional Facility has welcomed DAYA to continue providing the Yoga Teacher Training program to residents who began their training in 2019 and were unfortunately not able to complete due to Covid-19.
Our most impactful program is our prison yoga teacher training program for incarcerated men and women. This program provides a 200-hour teacher training for adults in custody to become certified yoga teachers on the inside.
These resident yoga teachers then provide yoga and mindfulness classes for their inside community, specifically for those even more vulnerable than themselves: residents in the mental health, behavioral, and addiction treatment units within the prison.
Now we are permitted to continue this mission by crafting video content that will not only facilitate the continuation of training but also support continued education too all in this program as a whole. What a powerful gift to support one, who wishes to expand and support others, thus lifting the entire community up!
For all those who donate $50 or more, you will receive your own copy of this Dharma Library!
We are deeply grateful for your support and invite you to watch the videos below for more information provided by our Founder, Sarahjoy Marsh.
