Help Prison Yoga and Meditation Expand

Tax deductible
Prison Yoga and Meditation reaches more than 5,000 incarcerated men, women, and LGBTQ individuals in five County, State, and Federal jails and prisons in the greater Los Angeles area.
During the pandemic, many of the 2M+ incarcerated went without these programs, however, since their return PY+M has been working to expand its efforts to reach an even larger audience and we need your help to do so!

Yoga and meditation help the incarcerated heal from chronic stress, PTSD, anxiety, depression, anger, and insomnia to name a few. In turn, they can foster greater presence, self-empowerment, self-awareness, and a sense of community so they may restore their role in their family and better succeed at reentering society.
Incarcerated women and men who engage in yoga and meditation practices are more likely to correct behaviors related to offending (impulsivity, aggression, and substance abuse) and seek treatments that reduce criminal behavior. As a result, those who practice yoga while incarcerated are less likely to re-offend after their release. Recidivism rates in the U.S. have hovered around 44% with those released returning to prison within their first year out.
Our incarcerated students thank us with tears in their eyes and expressions of disbelief that anyone on the outside would care about them let alone devote time and energy to teach them.

You may be one of those caring people and with your tax-deductible donation, you will help not only the incarcerated but all of society.
Thank you from the PY+M team and all the men and women we serve! To learn more visit https://prisonyogaandmeditation.org
