Make a Change

With your tax deductible donation, we can help more prisoners heal. Your generosity can change lives. Please share in our dream. We cannot do this without your help.

We are all potential criminals, and those whom we have put into prison are no worse, deep down, than any one of us. They have succumbed to ignorance, desire and anger, ailments that we all suffer from but to different degrees. Our duty is to help them.

— His Holiness, the Dalai Lama


PY+M is a Los Angeles based 501(c)3 whose mission is to bring healing to lonely, isolated, and forgotten prisoners through yoga and meditation. For six years, PY+M has touched the lives of thousands of prisoners in five state, county, and federal facilities.

Since Covid, all programs including yoga have been canceled in prisons and jails. Prisoners are locked in their cells—the size of a bathroom—with no visitors or outside contact. Though there is no end in sight to the prison quarantine, you can help us reach even more prisoners!

Prison Yoga + Meditation, with 250 photographed yoga poses, 25 sequences, as well as meditation guides, provides a complete yoga/meditation journey specific to prison life. $50,000 will cover initial publishing costs and distribute meaningful, high-quality yoga/mediation books immediately to 2,000 prisoners in the greatest need. Every additional $16.99 will send a book to another prisoner.


Please donate any amount today. Your kindness and generosity will help prisoners know that they are not forgotten. 

Thank you!
