Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.


Deeply inspired by the healing power of yoga and meditation, Recovery Yoga began as a volunteer weekly program to help the women at York Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison in Connecticut. Through the efforts of four Baptiste trained and dedicated yoga instructors, the women are empowered to recover from their past abuse and addiction to drugs. Recovery Yoga is responding to the urgent and growing need for rehabilitative programs for at-risk women and teens. This process of Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga touches the women’s hearts, bodies, and souls.

Recovery Yoga recently has added three programs, two of which are at The Amethyst House. The Amethyst House is a new treatment facility in North Haven, Connecticut designed for holistic, integrative care, support and education. The new programs include a Mommy and Me class, as well as a Yoga Nidra class for the mothers in recovery and their babies. Many of the mothers recently have been reunited with their children.

All of these programs have been a huge success and we look forward to helping many more women and their families. This past Christmas, Recovery Yoga collected presents and donated money for the children of the women at York Correctional Facility - another step in the healing process by helping the next generation. It was a happy day.
