Prison Yoga Project
IN NEED OF DONATED BICYCLES: I am teaching yoga as a volunteer in a local correctional facility for men who are transitioning out of incarceration as part of a work release program. Some men walk up to two hours in either direction for the opportunity to work. However, if they attend yoga class, group counseling, and meditation, they earn the privilege of using the bike for transportation. They do not get to keep the bike—rather, it is borrowed for very specific use. In this manner, a single bike can make a great difference for many men who are beginning their journey down a road that will hopefully prove positive and productive.
Do you have a bike you are willing to donate that adult men may use for transportation as part of their rehabilitation? I will arrange transportation of the bike (within a reasonable distance). PLEASE SHARE THIS POST. One bike can have a tremendous impact!
AND thanks to Janet Bixler for donating a bike! Pictured with me is Kathy Peppelman who is responsible for initiating the project.
Thank you to Teri Guerrisi for donating bikes to the project!
Thank you Gail King for rescuing this bike from a neighbor who considered putting it out with the trash.
