Are you grateful for Yoga
Let's pass on the gratitude during the month of November

Two Dog Yoga is espcially apprecitative to support Yoga Behind Bars:

  1. Rosa Vissers, Sunday instructor, was previously Executive Director of Yoga Behind Bars
  2. Carol Sanders, Sub instructor, is currently an active member on multiple YBB committees
  3. Annie's Anti-racist co-hort is raising money for Yoga Behind Bars and
  4. Every dollar raised by donation through Two Dog Yoga will be matched with three additional dollars (up to $2K), which will quadruple your donation!

A few highlights from Yoga Behind Bars:

🌟 We have led workshops for youth and staff in six juvenile facilities this year, primarily led by teachers with lived experience of incarceration

🌟 We have weekly programming in six adult facilities

🌟 We are in the process of securing a year long contract with DCYF to teach weekly classes at Green Hill School and Echo Glen 

**In this new contract we are looking to combine paid facilitation and volunteers; we're calling it the mentor model - more to come on that!**

🌟 We are BACK teaching weekly in-person at Monroe Correctional as of September. Hopefully Purdy is next!

🌟 Our vets programming at MRJC + KCCF is ongoing and we are set to return in person in the next couple of weeks

🌟 Our teachers behind bars are continuing to receive support from YBB, classes continue to be disrupted by outbreaks

🌟 We are looking to build more structure and community as we work towards bringing back in more volunteers
