Community Works

Community Works integrates yoga/meditation into the violence prevention curriculum in Resolve to Stop the Violence Project (RSVP) in the San Francisco County Jail. The core curriculum of RSVP teaches that violence is learned and can be un-learned.

Non-violent choices require men to develop impulse control, self-awareness, and emotional intelligence and communication skills. Yoga/meditation practices are synergistic with this core curriculum and reinforce the skills they are learning in classes.
