  • Yoga and Mindfulness in Juvenile Detention

    Centering Youth has started a Yoga and Mindfulness class at the Dekalb Regional Youth Detention Center in Dekalb County, Georgia.  We think this is the first Yoga and Mindfulness class in any juvenile or adult prison or detention center operated by the state of Georgia.

    Prison Yoga Project - San Quentin PrisonYoga and Mindfulness training are positive physical and mental activities that have proven effective in providing those who are incarcerated with tools for achieving calm and focus, and developing mental and emotional space for making reasoned rather than reactive decisions.  It is the goal of the Centering Youth to give participants tools to help them function in their current environment, as well as in their family units, in schools and in their communities, so they can succeed in reaching their positive goals, avoid future contact with the criminal justice system and advance the cause of community safety.
