Compassion in Action: Yoga and Mindfulness for Vulnerable Communities

The bitter and sweet of yoga in unusual places - foster care and runaway shelters, rehab facilities, prison diversion programs, domestic violence, refugee and human trafficking safe houses. Panelists will discuss how vulnerable populations can teach us the most about true healing impact, struggles to keep programs where there may not be a quiet space, bringing yoga where it's needed rather than easy, modifying classes for trauma and providing platforms for the voices of vulnerable populations.
