Yoga Unchained facilitates Yoga classes, in our local communities to underserved populations in correctional, mental health, addiction and other wellness facilities, that may otherwise not have access to this healing modality.
We are working towards breaking the stereotypes associated with these populations not only in the community but within their own perceptions.

We also offer Yoga Unchained, Facilitator Training courses for those who would like to enhance their skills and knowledge.

Teaching the skills, techniques, and practices of yoga to help each person unify their mental processes. Allowing the rational, emotional, and somatic brain to work harmoniously in the service of each person's recovery or wellness experience.

Connecting into and balancing personal energy, to bring it into an alignment that nourishes and sustains a person's recovery and wellness.  Creating the wisdom to harness ones energy and allow it to serve you instead of you serving it.



Honoring each persons life experiences.  The "How" of arriving at the Yoga Unchained approach.  Then, sharing the Experience of yoga, The Experience of breath, The Experience of movement.

Encouraging all of these experiences to unite, to connect to a Holistic way of healing.

Uncovering our innate ability to heal, survive and thrive within our lives.  Connecting to our natural healing process through yoga, brings an awareness that, given the right tools and mindset, we  can overcome anything. Quieting the mind to connect to our full capability to be or become resilient.
