Our intention with this gathering is to inspire participants to find what lights them up and to share that more effectively with the world. We will be exploring Mind, Body and Spirit during these 4-days together including time in nature, lunch and dinner conversation, and workshops with global thought leaders. The base will be two heart-opening yoga classes per day as well as thoughtful, curated conversations and workshops.

This transformational event supports Aspen City of Wellbeing, a non-profit organization dedicated to shifting culture towards an optimal state of wellbeing for all.

Lead With Love, October 26th-29th 2017.

Jail Yoga : From Trauma Towards Freedom

Take away stigma.

We (our society) often think of those in jail as bad or " the traumatizers", rather than "the traumatized". Those are two sides of the same coin.  

If we can transform our trauma, we can avoid inflicting it on others. Transforming trauma into self-regulation, wellness, and leadership.  

One thing we tend to forget is that many people in county jail have not yet been convicted of a crime.  Those with plenty of financial resources can post bail and await trial outside of jail.  Those without those same resources are required to await trial in jail sometimes.  

Guilty or not, going to jail is a huge trauma for most.  

Join this informative discussion around the yoga program at the Pitkin County Jail to learn about the development and implementation of the program and the important reasons to carry this kind of programming forward.
