A little bit about who you are supporting:
K10Yoga offers affordable yoga classes through the K10Yoga CoOp Studio, Yoga Teacher Training programs that train students to teach yoga from a compassionate point of view towards their own bodies, and the bodies of their students. The program encourages new and seasoned teachers to find their authentic teaching style, to step above fitness and teach what matters-teach from a place where students feel a connection with themselves and with something deeper. Classes where students feel safe to explore their own shadows and allow the sun to expose anything from the past that is no longer of service. K10Yoga takes yoga off the mat and into the world.
Yoga for 12 Step Recovery “connects the dots” between the ancient wisdom of yoga, the practical tools of 12-step programs, and the latest research on trauma healing and neurobiology. As part of a holistic recovery program, it works in tandem with traditional treatment to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction. The program serves people recovering from all manifestations of addiction, from behavioral addictions to substance abuse – creating a safe place on the mat where trauma can be released. It also supports those who are impacted by a loved one’s addiction. Weekly meetings led by certified Y12SR leaders are available in community settings across the United States. Y12SR is also offered as an adjunctive therapy in a growing number of addiction recovery treatment centers.
Yoga 4 Cancer (y4c) is a specialized yoga methodology that is tailored to address the specific physical and emotional needs left by the cancer & its treatments. This unique approach is not just gentle or restorative yoga but focuses on how to stimulate the immune system through movement, improve flexibility & strength along with reduced anxiety and boost overall well-being.
The Prison Yoga Project‘s objective is to provide prisoners with a mindfulness tool to draw on their yoga practice when they’re not doing yoga. If they’re tangled in a confrontation on the yard, or upon release, or tempted to go back to using, they can draw on what they have learned from yoga for practical solutions. They can do it without actually having to do a yoga pose to get the value. That’s the transformational, rehabilitative value of yoga.
Mindful Yoga Therapy programs are clinically tested and empirically informed. Mindful Yoga Therapy (MYT) is the product of Suzanne Manafort, a yoga teacher with decades of experience, looking for a way to give back to society. She volunteered to work with veterans at her local Veterans Administration Hospital. Working as part of the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Residential Rehabilitation Program (PRRP) with veterans experiencing the most extreme symptoms for a few years, Suzanne recognized the benefits of her efforts and the need for more teachers. She started with programs to train experienced teachers to help teach veterans and others who have faced severe trauma. With the help of Robin Gilmartin, an experienced psychoanalyst at the West Haven VA and the faculty and staff of the MYT Team, Suzanne developed Breathe In, Breathe Out, a meditation practice to help veterans while at the VA or at home. Suzanne and Robin also developed the MYT Practice Guide which has been distributed free to over 18,000 veterans.
