We are often asked why we chose the name Trini Foundation. Trini is the Sanskrit word for "three." Asana, which refers the physical postures, is the third of eight limbs in Ashtanga yoga. We begin with asana as a technique to quiet our active minds.
The foundation’s mission is sharing Ashtanga yoga with those suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, and bringing the transformative practice into underserved communities. In addition to teaching Ashtanga in treatment centers, prisons, and halfway houses, the foundation works with professionals to help those newly sober gain the skills necessary to successfully integrate back into society. The foundation also makes the practice accessible to all through scholarship and outreach programs.
Therefore, the practice of Ashtanga yoga becomes the entry point into a new way of living.
