Barefoot Yoga has the highest admiration for non-profit groups that heal and help through the practice of yoga. One very special organization is located in our very own state of Washington!
Yoga Behind Bars is a non-profit organization in Washington state that holds yoga and meditation classes for incarcerated youth, women and men. Their mission is to bring self-awareness, healing and transformation for their students. They strive for love, respect, integrity, hope and safety behind bars and beyond. The students are given tools to cope with depression, addiction, anger, anxiety and loss of self-esteem. It is their vision that yoga would provide a pathway to freedom through deep healing and self-awareness.
