Wendy, Niki and Delanie

A traumatic event is anything that overwhelms our capacity to cope and respond. It leaves us feeling helpless, hopeless, and out of control.” Hala Khouri

The project will look at how the practice of *trauma-informed yoga impacts the health and well-being of women and children who have experienced violence, as well as front-line staff who work in the anti-violence sector.

Yoga Outreach is a nonprofit organization which brings volunteer yoga teachers together with community and social service organizations to provide mindfulness-based, trauma-informed yoga programming to people living with mental wellness issues, substance use, poverty, trauma and imprisonment.

    Mine would be animal rescue, especially misunderstood animals like PitBulls, Mastiffs, Bulldogs, Reptiles, Rodents, Avians, and many others that are often victims of neglect.

    I work with The Warrior Ride helping combat wounded veterans. We use adaptive cycling to help with the rehabilitation process.

    Mine is a general one – infant loss. No one ever wants to talk about it but it happens and it sucks (to put it mildly)! There needs to be more awareness about it and places parents and family members can go to share their stories, their pain, their anger and not feel so alone!

    Yes adoption awareness. We are adopting for the 3rd time. There are so many children who need a forever family. Currently there are over 400,000 children in foster care in the US. A very alarming number.

    Our women’s shelters. ..I just wish there were more available to the women and children who need them. As a previous resident, I can vouch for how needed they are and the benefits that we get from living there for the year!

    Animal rescue. My mom makes a calendar every year and donates the proceeds every year to rescues locally. Kim Ortiz photography.

    Finding a cure for cancer is my greatest wish! My husband was diagnosed with colon cancer this year, had to have a big operation and is now going through chemo treatments. 2015 has been a very hard year for us, but we will get through this together!
