From Our Editors

In 2003, Shaina Traisman taught her first yoga class in Seattle’s downtown jail. The students' blossoming interest in the class and the facility’s obvious need touched Shaina. So two years later, she founded Yoga Behind Bars to reach as many students as possible and helped increase the number of teachers involved. Every week, 35 volunteer instructors teach yoga poses, breath work, philosophy, and meditation exercises to more than 150 men, women, and children at correctional facilities across the region as a form of therapy and rehabilitation. The yoga classes are designed to grant the students inner freedom and help them overcome their stressors and destructive behavioral patterns for when they reenter society.
