Tiffany Seybert founded Cop To Yoga Peace Force as a community-based peace initiative. Seybert’s program unites volunteer Yoga teachers with their local Chicago Police districts to provide evidence-based breath work meditation tools as a way to neutralize stress in real time. The result is officers and the community joining together to create relationships, with the understanding that we are all connected and working together to create peaceful interactions in our city. Seybert leads a class called Roll Call, which is seven minutes of Yoga breath work meditation given in the roll calls as officers start their shift. Officers are seated and in uniform, and practice the work Monday through Friday. This format provides repetition and depth to ensure the work becomes embedded in their daily wellness practices. In addition to this video interview with Seybert, you can read about the project in this Yoga Chicago article.
