I have to say that one of my catalysts for doing a yoga teacher training program was to be able to teach yoga in Juvenile Detention Facilities. I am appalled by these statistics, and giving kids the inner strength and knowledge to know how to feel confident about themselves is one way I can think of to help remedy the situation. Thanks for helping bring this to light. Juvenile Detention Facilities, especially the prisons, are scary, and many kids never really leave them.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
