Yoga for ex-prisoners
The COPS Club offer a clean, friendly and safe space for ex-prisoners. We assist in improving confidence and respect for others through Yoga and meditation. Non judgmental time focuses on empowering people to rejoin society.
Restoring, rebuilding and repairing self-confidence for attendees is the aim of The COPS Club. We offer a free weekly Yoga and meditation class to ex-prisoners and SHOC visitors. We greet and treat all who join our project as respected friends.
The only boundaries are that when attending, there is an understanding that no alcoholic drink or drugs should be taken into the building and appropriate friendly behaviour is always expected.
Who Are We?
The initial team who developed the COPS Club, had a variety of life experiences, including in depth experience as Yoga teachers. Some have taught Yoga in prisons under the guidance of The Prison Phoenix Trust, who give help, support and training to all their yoga teachers who work in prisons.
The initial idea of the COPS Club was developed in 2018 and our first Yoga and meditation class was in February 2019 at SHOC. The COPS Club hugely appreciates being welcomed by SHOC, Slough Homeless Our Concern and we work closely with their staff. SHOC is open daily to homeless and vulnerable people in the Slough area.
They give meals, offer showers and give help and advice with the benefit system and rehousing. They are a genuinely friendly team who have set clear boundaries for a safe space for all their visitors. SHOC also works with the charity, Trinity who provide supported housing for single people in Slough and Hillingdon.
The COPS Club have regular meetings to decide the best way to meet our aims and objectives of improving confidence and relaxation, to help those who come to our classes begin to cope with their life situations better. Also issues of funding are considered to enable the present and future successful running of The COPS Club.
