Welcome to Yoga for Ex-Prisoners and Visitors at SHOC

Discover peace and strength through yoga at the COPS Club – Cuffs Off for Peace and Strength. Established in 2019 within the Slough Homeless Our Concern (SHOC) organisation, our mission is to empower ex-prisoners and all visitors to SHOC with the tools of yoga and meditation to navigate life’s challenges. Regardless of background, all are welcome to join our classes.


Leaving prison can be a daunting transition, often leaving individuals with depleted self-confidence and lacking the resources to navigate daily life. At the COPS Club, we offer Trauma Informed Yoga (TIY), ensuring a safe and accessible practice for all, as many have endured traumatic experiences.


Our classes blend yoga postures, breath work, meditation, and relaxation techniques, providing a holistic approach to healing. TIY helps rebalance the nervous system, fostering rest, relaxation, and overall well-being. Participants are encouraged to engage at their own pace, fostering a sense of control and confidence in their journey.


Thursdays 1.00 pm

@ SHOC The Quaker Meeting House, 74 Ragstone Road, Slough SL1 2PX 

For many ex-offenders and vulnerable individuals, the dream of a stable life with a home, job, and supportive network feels out of reach. Reintegration into society is often hindered by a lack of essential life skills and societal stigma.

At SHOC, where mental health and addiction challenges are prevalent, our free weekly yoga classes offer a supportive and non-judgmental environment. Our goal is to cultivate resilience, mutual respect, and empowerment, laying the groundwork for individuals to reintegrate and contribute positively to their communities.

At the COPS Club, inclusivity is paramount. Following the principles of the Government’s Equality Policy 2010, we ensure that all attendees are treated with equal respect and dignity, irrespective of differences. From gender diversity to racial inclusivity, expectant mothers to individuals with disabilities or seniors, our classes cater to diverse needs. With tailored guidance and encouragement from our experienced instructors, everyone can find solace and empowerment on the mat.


About Us:

The COPS Club, founded in 2019, collaborates closely with SHOC to provide essential support to its visitors. SHOC serves as a vital resource centre for the homeless and vulnerable population in Slough, offering meals, showers, and practical assistance with navigating the benefits system. There are clear boundaries to ensure the safety of everyone, no drugs or alcohol are to be taken into the building and appropriate friendly behaviour is expected.

The COPS Club team, led by dedicated individuals with extensive experience in yoga instruction and community support, is committed to our shared mission of empowerment and healing. Together, we strive to improve lives and foster positive change, one yoga class at a time.
