Rehabilitation Prevention Research

Currently a handful of yoga teachers work in NZ's prisons, mostly on a voluntary basis. Yet yoga is proven to be effective in prison settings, helping reduce violence and stress and support self-awareness and positive change. Help us bring more yoga into NZ's prisons, and use evaluation to build the case for ongoing government and philanthropic funding.

The Yoga Education in Prisons Trust is a registered charity that since 2009 has supported yoga and meditation teachers working with in prisons around NZ. We provide (limited) financial support, training and mentoring, and undertake research into how yoga and meditation can best be used with prison populations.

(Because we are limited in our ability to take photographs in NZ prisons, some images on the video are courtesy of the Prison Yoga Project in San Francisco, USA).
