Common Ground, the SF-based sustainability and healthy lifestyle magazine, ran this piece about yoga as an outreach approach to girls who have committed crimes and been victimized:
“Violence. Vulnerability. Mistreatment…Meditation? No, it’s not a game of which word doesn’t belong — it’s the prototypical path to healing followed by teenage participants in the Art of Yoga Project, a local nonprofit that’s taught yoga, writing and art to hundreds of girls in the California juvenile justice system since 2002.”
You can pick up a free issue at grocery stores and yoga studios around the Bay Area. To find out more about donating to or volunteering to the project, visit Art of Yoga (much more worthwhile than the next seven minutes you’ll spend on YouTube).
