Ask Your Teacher: How do you use your yoga for good?
While there are many personal benefits to a yoga practice, there are also many ways that yoga can benefit the wider world. We caught up with some of our Namaste instructors to see how their yoga steps off their mats.

Find Vickie on your mat in public classes here, or take your experience with her even deeper in her upcoming Restorative Yoga Training, where you can truly learn how and why it is important to be at ease in every moment.
Because we know the benefits of yoga are plentiful to each and every human, another way to pose this same question is, how can yoga benefit people who don’t have access to the practice or are part of underserved populations? Our upcoming program, Prison Yoga Project, led by James Fox, takes this question to task. This program is designed for anyone interested in creating a more humane and effective criminal justice system should take this training: therapists, social workers, lawyers, correctional officers, administrators, and, especially, yoga teachers who are ready to take their practice into the realm of service.
