Survivors of Domestic Violence
Did you know that one out of every four women will be assaulted or raped by their spouse or intimate partner during their lifetime? And that nearly 3 million children are witnesses to it every year?
To help address the epidemic of violence and assault against women and children, Kula for Karma partners with Women’s Shelters to offer therapeutic yoga, breath work, and meditation. Such practices help to reduce flashbacks and bad memories, develop greater resistance to stress, reduce alcoholism, substance abuse, and anxiety, and improve sleep and overall quality of life.

"The awareness I gained on my mat guided me to seek deeper healing at A Window Between Worlds (AWBW), the only national nonprofit organization that uses art as a healing tool for women and children who are survivors of domestic violence.
Art and yoga became safe spaces for me to express and heal. They connected me with my Sankalpa (life’s higher purpose or spiritual inner drive), which is to spread healing and love and help people embrace their strength while recognizing their innate ability to create joyful, loving and abundant lives."
