About Sadhana Service Project
In 2018, Sadhana Service Project was created in Hudson, New York to bring yoga and mindfulness into the Hudson Correctional Facility (HCF), immediately expanding to create a program for women on parole in Dutchess County. Our project has exploded, as the need is great: we now teach yoga and meditation in nine different organizations in the Hudson Valley, and we have initiated the nation’s first yoga teacher training for women in a mandated recovery center.
Our aim is to bring evidence-based, trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness to those impacted by trauma, addiction and incarceration. In order to deepen the expertise of our teaching team, we offer and require our certified yoga teachers to complete our training programs on best practices for teaching in prisons and recovery centers.
