Prison Yoga Lady

Prison Yoga Lady


my Story

Starting in 2010 I began offering trauma-informed, gender sensitive yoga classes to incarcerated men and women and to prison staff. Beginning with one class at Maryland Correctional Institution for Women, I established and led  Prison Yoga Project chapter Maryland, training and supervising additional teachers and expanding the program to offer classes in multiple facilities.

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 2016 I implemented a pioneering Yoga Alliance registered 200 hour yoga teacher training for women prisoners in collaboration with the Yoga Center of Columbia, MD

I was a contributing editor to Yoga Service Council publication Best Practices for Yoga in the Criminal Justice System

Recognizing a broader need for Trauma Informed Yoga, I co-developed and teach Trauma Informed Yoga workshops, applicable to yoga teachers working in a wide variety of settings.
