YOGA FOR GOOD - NONPROFITS RAISE FUNDS TO CREATE CHANGE

Part II: The Yoga Series Continues

How can we change the world? Let me count the ways!

Just as I thought I was forging new ground on Yoga and Nonprofits, a source sends me a lead on a group called "Yoga For Good". Guess I haven't killed my ego just yet.

Check out the PaloAlto Online story: Bad Girls Doing Time Learn Art of Yoga for a story of how yoga is transforming the lives of incarcerated girls.

Another program helping incarcerated youth and at-risk teens and "transitional age youth" GETTING OUT BY GOING IN© is a non-profit organization that educates and rehabilitates incarcerated and at-risk individuals by providing essential tools needed to make stronger decisions.

This program is awesome. I truly believe if we all join forces we can eradicate our current prison system.
