Our August Program of the Month is Integrity House!
Integrity House is dedicated to offering yoga to individuals and their families suffering from substance abuse across their New Jersey facilities. Kula for Karma is proud to provide equally as dedicated yoga instructors who are willing to share the gift of yoga with both men and women in the Adult Residential program at the Hudson County Correctional Center in Kearny, NJ.
This program assists individuals in recovering towards a drug free, positive lifestyle through a wide range of therapeutic and reentry services.
Here is what one of the clients at Hudson County Corrections had to say about their yoga program:
“For me it (yoga) didn't feel like a challenge. I was open to the experience which made it helpful especially being incarcerated. The best experience was being able to do the Tri-pod position! I enjoyed being able to try something new in an uncomfortable place. The yoga program helps me relax especially when times seem they are too difficult to handle. I'm learning how to center my thoughts. This will help me when I get out. I am going to continue to practice yoga and I know it may keep your body and mind fit. Even though prison is the last place you want to be, take advantage of the services and correct or unlearn the negative behavior to replace with positive ones.”
We are so grateful that we have been able to work with Integrity House to offer this support for over 7 years!
