About this campaign

I have a wonderful opportunity to bring the practice of yoga to incarcerated women in the very near future. This is a dream come true for me, and I am humbly overjoyed to be able to serve an underserved population.
These women are obviously without many of our daily comforts, but in this context, they are unable to come to class with yoga mats and other props that make class comfortable, safe, and transformative.


This shirt and this fundraiser has been created to help to cover the cost of purchasing the necessary supplies to offer the best possible practice to my students, as well as enrolling in additional training to teach my classes with a greater understanding and sensitivity to trauma.



These shirts themselves are designed with many things in mind. “Open-Handed” is a phrase I use often in my yoga classes. I invite my students to consider their open hands as their palms face the sky. This posture communicates three things: a willingness to receive, a willingness to release, and a willingness to give. When we have a need, we outstretch our hands to receive that need. When we let things go, we loosen our grasp and release. And when we have something we can offer to another, we open our hand, giving it away. When we master these things, we move into detachment from desperation, dependency, and selfishness, and we move into a place of freedom, even if just in our innermost beings. This is my primary hope: to affirm these women in their value and worth, but also encourage them to this inner freedom of the heart, spirit, and mind through a yoga practice. Lastly, the moon has long been hailed as the sign of the cool, feminine energy, contrasting with the warm, masculine energy of the sun. This is to honor and represent the female students this practice will be offered to.

My name is Sam and I’m a 225-hour registered Holy Yoga Instructor and certified yoga teacher from Cleveland, OH. I began practicing yoga in 2010, and she completed my teacher training in June of 2018. I am passionate about yoga because it connects our spiritual, emotional, and physical growth, creating a holistic approach to self-improvement and maturation. But also, it’s fun! I love working with all kinds of yoga students, of every age, shape, gender, and body type! It is my primary hope, as a teacher, to help my students find freedom, joy, and peace through their yoga practice.
From a very young age, I have had a heart for the underserved, underrepresented, and the underdog. When I thought about ways I could give back and people I could serve, incarcerated populations were heavy on my mind. I am humbled and overwhelmed to be given the opportunity to teach yoga to and work with inmates. It’s my heart to simply hold space for these women to find meaning and healing within themselves through their practice, and to be able to transcend their circumstances for even just a moment, and maybe even have some fun.
