Bill Brown, C-IAYT, is the Executive Director of the Prison Yoga Project. He has eight years of experience facilitating trauma-informed, embodied-mindfulness practices for incarcerated people in prison and jails in San Diego, California. He has worked at municipal, state, and federal levels, including in Mental Health units and Administrative Segregation (aka solitary confinement). Bill is one of Prison Yoga Project's principal trainers and is a contributing editor to the Yoga Service Council's book Best Practices for Yoga in the Criminal Justice System. "My work offering embodied mindfulness practices in prisons and jails became a lens that made clear to me the traumatic injustice and inequalities that undermine our social fabric, our union. Yoga has allowed me to face my trauma and prepares me to hold space for others to do the same."
