The Good We Do Together – Healing from the Inside

Remand Centre

Yoga provides a sense of calm; a safe inner space to self-reflect, recognize how trauma responses affect our daily lives, and learn to self-regulate and develop healthier responses.

Our outreach program with the Edmonton Remand Centre helps bring inner peace and positive coping strategies to those who need them most.
