At Sadhana Service Project (SSP), we believe everyone deserves access to the healing benefits of yoga.
Founded by Sadhana Center’s Director Sondra Loring, Sadhana Service Project brings trauma-informed, mindfulness-based yoga and meditation to people impacted by trauma, addiction and incarceration in New York’s Hudson Valley. The resources and tools we provide for recognizing and reducing aggression, impulsivity, reactivity, and despair, give prisoners and addicts a greater chance of taking responsibility and living differently. We say these tools and resources are the foundation for personal and social transformation.
We have active programs running concurrently in prisons, recovery centers, and residential centers for young people. We are now also working with children of incarcerated parents, through the Greater Hudson Promise organization in Hudson, NY.
