200-hour Yoga Teacher Trainings in Oregon Prisons Fundraiser
Oregon prisons have asked for our help transforming the communities on the inside! We are the DAYA Foundation, and we have 20 years of experience teaching yoga in prisons.
In August of 2015 we launched the first 200-hour Yoga Alliance Registered yoga teacher training program inside a prison. With 200-hours of rigorous study in yoga philosophy, mindfulness, neuroscience, teaching skills, classroom management techniques, and interpersonal neurobiology, our newest yoga teachers inside graduated from this training in March of 2015.We now have twelve certified yoga teachers, more than half of them have life sentences, at Oregon State Correctional Institution (OSCI) teaching yoga classes. And, we have 3 more prisons requesting a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program for their community: Snake River Correctional Institution (SRCI), Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (CCCF), and Oregon State Penitentiary (OSP). We are enthused to do so! However, we are also seeking funding support to create and sustain these projects.
