“My reasons for doing yoga have evolved over the years, but today I would answer very succinctly: “I do yoga to feel good. I do yoga to feel better.” I suspect that my incarcerated students wish for the same things – to achieve a state of well-being and to find peace in an environment that is the antithesis of both.” #pattyschneider (LPY teacher feature for July)

Thank you Patty for your love, dedication, and the strength you bring to your students every week!

Part of our work is pausing for our own practice. So all teachers, activist, and students out there here is your reminder to stop, breathe, feel the ground under your feet. Make time for yourself.  #dailyaffirmation

What is trauma-conscious yoga?
Trauma-conscious yoga, is to alter the form of the class to create a safe setting that encourages neural integration through connection with our students. #thursdaythoughts

Hope is defined as a feeling to trust. Many of our students have been let down their whole lives, by the systems that should be protecting them. We offer yoga and meditation as a tool to explore hope in themselves. To start changing the system from within. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
