Thank you Allyson Meacham and Bikram Yoga Louisville! This is amazing. I am so excited and touched to see the yoga community come together to bring yoga to the people that need it most!
These kids have been moved by Allyson's innate ability to connect with them on a level at which they can relate. She has a beautiful gift and we are so blessed she is sharing this with UpRising Yoga so these kids can benefit.
We Love you Allyson! Keep up the great work!
We toured another Juvenile Hall site today to bring yoga to kids serving life in prison. Tried as "adults". OH MAN. I know our yoga can provide them some peace.
Mary Newman and I drove to Sylmar and were pretty nervous I have to say. Once we met the staff and went on the tour of the facility, I was completely welcomed and filled with years of experience of stories and ease, I can say I am fully confident we are in great hands to bring our yoga program!
The idea of kids serving life is hard to fathom. I'm sure the crimes that were committed are equally heinous and hard to stomach. I know yoga can help this population. I know that we can bring healing tools for breathing, stress reduction and ways to calm these kids. I'm honored to be a part of the solution.
