Prison Yoga Lady


my Story

Since 2010 I have been offering trauma-informed, gender sensitive yoga classes to men and women prisoners and to prison staff. Starting with one class at Maryland Correctional Institution for Women, I expanded Prison Yoga Project programs across Maryland. Currently I offer classes at 3 facilities and supervise additional programs throughout the state.

Inspired by my students' hunger for deeper understanding, I wrote A Woman’s Practice: Healing from the Heart. The book is designed to help women with a history of trauma or addiction engage in self-healing through a personal yoga practice. It is available for free to incarcerated women throughout the country.

In collaboration with the Yoga Center of Columbia, I am leading Prison Yoga Project’s pioneering Yoga Alliance registered RYT200 teacher training for women prisoners. The first class is expected to graduate in December 2016.
