Yoga in Detention Centres 

 

We have been sharing Yoga with people of all ages inside detention centres since 2015 including:

  • Refugee and Asylum seeking women held in detention 

  • Men's groups in Maximum security detention centres 

  • Teenage girls in Juvenile Justice facilities

Participants in our detention programs reported

  • Improved sleep

  • Reduced pain

  • Greater sense of calm and relaxation
