On Thursday, July 14th, Barbara Infeld, one of Kula’s greatest supporters and mother of our founder, Geri Topfer, passed away after a three year battle with breast and ovarian cancer. Throughout the course of her treatment, practicing yoga helped Barbara to manage her symptoms and improve her overall well-being. She wanted to ensure that even more people who are battling cancer have access to the practice and experience the same benefits. If you’d like to make a donation in Barbara’s honor, you can do so here:
Dr. Larry Rosen, Pediatrician and Founder of The Whole Child Center is pioneering Kula’s first program for medical students. “As a profession, we need to do a much better job helping prospective physicians develop effective stress coping skills, while simultaneously creating a new culture of medical education focused on nurturing the whole doctor,” Dr. Rosen offers. "I am truly excited to personally work on behalf of Kula for Karma with the students at the Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall, providing a healthy road map for success through yoga, meditation and healthy lifestyle mentorship." Kula for Karma is grateful to Martin and Barbara Rosen for creating this fund in honor of their son, Dr. Rosen.
