I am passionate about Sea Change Yoga.
Ask me why and I will encourage you to watch the video link below. I am a founding board member for SCY because our mission is aligned with everything I believe. Yoga heals and our most vulnerable populations often don't have access to these classes which teach ways to calm and regulate the nervous system while fostering strength, flexibility, and presence in our bodies. SCY classes are often life lines to our students. We teach trauma informed yoga and meditation classes in substance use disorder treatment facilities, correctional facilities, and half way homes for men, women, and youth. Our classes offer connection to a new way of being in the world. We take seriously the work we do and compensate our teachers fairly alongside offering cutting edge continuing education in the field of trauma sensitive yoga. Our teachers are compassionate and skilled. SCY is building a community that is supportive, inclusive, and forward thinking.

There are 3 ways to support this grass roots effort:
1) Donate on this fundraising page. Every dollar makes a difference!
2) Participate as an individual with a minimum $199 fundraising goal.
3) Gather some friends and create your own team with each member raising a minimum of $199.

Please join us Sunday, March 31st for what is certain to be an inspirational gathering of yogis in support of a meaningful cause. Make a difference. This is yoga...on a mission!

Please don't hesitate to be in touch if you have any questions. We are so grateful for your support. ~ with love, Jen

About the Organization

Sea Change Yoga is a nonprofit yoga service organization based in Portland, ME. We bring the evidence based practices of yoga and meditation to those who have experienced trauma, are under-served and marginalized, and in need of the emotional regulation and increased physical and mental health that yoga and meditation practice provides.

We currently teach 24 trauma-informed yoga classes each week to over 250 students at residential treatment facilities, substance use recovery centers, correctional institutions, and others.

Our trauma-informed teaching strategies are designed to be uniquely effective for students with trauma in their background. We are modifying the elements of traditional yoga to facilitate mindfulness, maximize tolerance, build empowerment, and cultivate a more positive relationship to one’s body.

These simple, yet powerful tools of transformation reduce stress and anxiety, support the addiction recovery process, help break the cycle of substance abuse and incarceration, and so much more.
