I feel much more stable emotionally with regular yoga practice. It seems I’m much more able to brush things off and my psycological state is more stable. I have learned an element of self control as I hold a difficult pose and use mind over matter. I’m able to practice this is all phases of my life.

My practice has definitely benefited me in regard to my mood swings. Being bipolar I believe that my yoga practice has everything to do with a natural mindful sense of balance what has become the support I trust enough to reduce my medicine to one prescript.
— B.M., Prison Yoga Student
The yoga classes have helped me with impulse control, obsessive and compulsive thinking patterns, and given me the ability to find calm in stressful situations. I have learned what it means to be at peace with myself and live everyday mindful of who I really am.
— D.P, Prison Yoga Student
I’m able to stay grounded by getting into my breathing which takes my focus off stressful, traumatic events such as flashbacks. It keeps me mindful mentally and physically and enhances my self control.
