We're taking yoga where it isn't!
In communities that need it most
Inmates in the Utah State Correctional Facility are becoming certified yoga teachers.
The women in the class said the training has forever changed them.
Lebogang Monageng-Goad (aka Lebo) is a proudly South African woman who’s dharma is strongly founded on the principle of Ubuntu; an African philosophy that denotes that “I am, because we are”. Lebo is among the former graduates of the Yoga Forward BIPOC scholarship program, and is now a Trauma Sensitive RYT500 and PYT. She has taught yoga to military veterans from the Salt Lake VA, the Utah Refugee center, the Utah State Prison, the Granite School District Family Engagement Centers, and is a teacher trainer for Yoga Assets Teacher Training Systems.
In alignment with our mission to take yoga where it isn’t, Lebo currently serves as the Executive Director for Yoga Forward and hopes to one day extend this beautiful gift of yoga with her community in South Africa.
