“Again and again, the warden and prison staff have commented on the positive impact yoga has made on the inmates' stress level, outlook, and interpersonal skills.” - Liberation Institute, Maine State Prison
Join us for a special evening of yoga, meditation, and relaxation before the holidays! Support your own wellness, as well as offer thanks and support to the Liberation Institute, an inspiring local non-profit. All proceeds from the event will directly support the Institute's Yoga Teacher Training program at the Maine State Prison.
Founded in 2014, the Liberation Institute is a 501(c)(3) that offers education, wellness, and recovery services to underserved populations in northern New England and beyond. Piers and Jessica Kaniuka, two of the co-founders of Liberation Institute, have been providing Yoga Teacher Training, recovery workshops, and educational curriculum to inmates at the Maine State Prison in Warren since 2016. The Institute has graduated two cohorts of nationally-accredited yoga teachers at the prison in the last several years.
