yogaHOPE

yogaHOPE, is a non-profit yoga outreach program dedicated to offering yoga instruction to women in recovery or life transition – the incarcerated, those in drug and alcohol treatment, those living on the streets, battered women, and women transitioning from hospital treatment for eating disorders.

The practice of yoga has been shown to produce positive motivational change by helping women regain their vital center of energy, satisfaction, and stability.

Yoga can help reduce low self-esteem and poor body image, and greatly improves a woman's sense of personal empowerment - yet female populations who could benefit from this practice don’t have access to it.

Their team of volunteer teachers believes very strongly in the practice of yoga and the importance of making yoga available to those women, therefore they bring yoga classes to the facilities where these women live or visit: Their residential rehab facilities, homeless shelters, prisons etc...

If you're interested, you can volunteer as a teacher or in other ways as well.

Through yogaHope, these women will have the opportunity to make powerful and positive changes in their lives. Want to see their inspirational video? Then

I don't do Yoga. I'm agreeing with i heart monster, it sounds like a good cause.

This sounds like such a worthy cause! Too bad it's only in Mass. I would totally volunteer if there was one in my neck of the woods!
