The Big Idea
“Our organization started in 2007 with someone being asked to teach yoga in prison; it was a kind of natural outreach. I then started thinking of how can I share this with the underserved population. That’s how it began and it has grown; people really love it.

We teach yoga to inmates. We have 15 facilities state-wide with 16 volunteer teachers teaching yoga to 4000 inmates every year.”

Being a Finalist
“We are super excited to be in the finals. We know that it was really competitive to get here and we are really excited to share what we do with a bigger audience.”
