PLEASE SHARE IN OUR DREAM FOR LOS ANGELES, WE CANNOT DO THIS WITHOUT YOUR HELP!
It is always nice to know where your donations are being spent!
Prison Yoga + Meditation is dedicated to maintaining a lean organization working from virtual offices with our focus on the actual teaching of yoga and meditation.
Teaching one yoga/meditation class takes four to five hours out of an instructor’s day, depending on the facility it can be the whole day. We need many more teachers, but because many yoga/meditation teachers make their living teaching they can’t afford to give up paid classes to teach with us. To reach more of the thousands of prisoners incarcerated in our immediate area our goal is to break away from the volunteer model and to eventually pay instructors.
Our goal is to raise the funds to afford to hire the instructors we need to teach daily classes in ten facilities in Los Angeles. Imagine the difference that would make in our great city of Los Angeles!
We also need mats and blocks to start new programs.
Please help us reach our goals of sharing yoga and meditation with more prisoners!
PRISON YOGA + MEDITATION FOR WOMEN is a completed yoga/meditation manual written in an easy to follow style that we would like to photograph, publish and distribute to women incarcerated across the United States. Please help us accomplish that goal!
We are grateful to you for any donations. Any amount helps.
In gratitude, the PYM Team
