Each year, Sadhana Service Project brings yoga and mindfulness to traumatized populations in jails, prisons and recovery centers. What keeps us repeatedly going into these dark places? It is the transformations we witness and the relationships we create. We have co-created a specific relationship, over time, for each group that we connect with.

In the first few months of the pandemic, we completed the first-ever (in the country) yoga teacher training for women at Meadow Run, a mandated recovery center. Four women made the commitment and became certified to teach yoga. We see how these tools can provide a foundation for personal and social transformation. Now we are going to start a second cohort with a diverse and promising group of four new women.

IT’S SO SIMPLE TO CARE, AND IT IS PROFOUND

We also have a relationship with each of you – we write this to you because we know you care. We want to sustain our connection to you and let you know that what you donate, whatever that can be, touches so many people. It’s a win/win situation: then we are all able to explore new avenues for self-connection, healing, and transformation. Your support is what makes it possible.

The organization consists of a small team of teachers, sharing information, and continuing to train in best practices. A $75 donation supports a mat and blanket for one student, $150 pays a teacher, $600 supports one woman for one month in the teacher training program at Meadow Run.
