WHAT'S HAPPENING NEXT?
Transitional Yoga Program
program has certainly seen a lot of growth over the past several years. The classes are approved pro-social activities through Boulder County probation department, and they are free for our participants to attend. We have also been asked to create a yoga program in Broomfield County detention Center, which began in February 2018.
Unfortunately, Yoga Workshop has closed their doors after 30 years of yoga. Yoga Workshop donated space for our weekly community class for 7 years, and we are sad to see them go. The building has been sold and they will not be actively looking to reopen elsewhere. We are currently in search of another yoga space in which to offer our free community classes to participants.
Our research study has been completed and we presented some preliminary findings at the Association of Psychological Science in San Francisco, CA in May 2018. This was an amazing opportunity to connect with other researchers in the field of psychology that are interested in the benefits of yoga and other health and well-being practices. We are currently working on the manuscript to be published in a research journal. Stay tuned!
