UpRising Yoga is a non-profit whose mission is to “bring yoga to incarcerated youth and underserved communities” We teach yoga to heal trauma with incarcerated youth, children with a history of foster care and / or commercial sexual exploitation (CSEC), and communities that need it most. We hold trauma informed yoga trainings and teach yoga in areas that do not offer yoga, establishing community.
What does Yoga have to do with Human Trafficking? We teach yoga in juvenile hall, group homes, community centers, youth correction facilities, etc. to foster youth, CSEC, at-risk youth who benefit from yoga healing.
