The Yoga Angels Foundation is was founded and lead by Founding Director (Master Yoga & Wellness Trainer) Subhadra Bowman. Since 2015 , YAF has partnered with the Organization of American States (OAS) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), working in three of Jamaica’s juvenile centers.
We have successfully implemented sustainable behavior modification programs across Kingston and St Catherine with the youth & staff at South Camp, Rio Cobre and Metcalfe Street Juvenile & Correctional Centers.
Through our WAM programs, South Camp in Kingston currently has 5 certified Wellness & Yoga teachers with weekly programming for both staff and wards. In 2017-2018 WAM was implemented at Rio Cobre in Spanish Town and currently has 11 certified sustainable teachers.
The third institution, Metcalfe, is located in Denah Town where we have completed the three months introductory phase of WAM classes in 2018 and currently await OAS and USAID’s direction for the next leg of the program for this institution. Our long term goal is to build alternative healing centers.
