Prison Yoga Dharma Library Support Yoga in Prison
Creating Teachers on the Inside
DAYA Foundation is excited to announce that our Prison Yoga Dharma Library for Coffee Creek Correctional Facility is now available to the public too!! As of January 30, 2022, we have completed the library of 10 Yamas and 12 Niyamas.
Our prison yoga teacher training program for incarcerated men and women 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.
We created this video content to not only facilitate the continuation of trainings in prisons but also to support our public yoga community to deepen their studies as well.
Donate to support this cause and we will gift you with this Prison Yoga 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.
