Akhila Health: Empowering underserved women to be “whole”

Woman holding a scarf in the wind

We all have the same need - to be loved and to love. To be heard and to express, to matter. To live life on our terms. To be happy.

Akhila Health works with underserved and low-income women through some of the hardest points in their lives. By providing holistic stress management resources, we empower them to gain a new sense of ownership of their lives.

The word Akhila means ‘whole’ or ‘complete’ in Sanskrit. We believe that the best way to give these women their lives back is by enabling them to address all aspects of their wellbeing - body, mind, and spirit. That’s the crux of our work. Our goal is to encourage women to tap into their inner wisdom and resources, build resilience, survive and thrive.

We want them to realize their potential to live a life of purpose and meaning, balance and joy!

How Akhila Health Works

Woman sitting by the sea

We believe every women - regardless of income, zip code, ethnicity or background - deserves access to life changing and often life saving stress management tools and resources. To that end, our programming includes multiple 8-week holistic health workshop modules. By encouraging these women to understand their ‘whole’ selves (body, mind, and spirit), we empower them to manage stress, take an active role in building resilience, and create long-term, permanent changes in their lives.

Women, in particular those lacking (access to) resources, are often 'invisible' in our societies. By providing a safe, loving atmosphere for self-assessment and reflection during the Akhila Health workshops, we empower them to validate their self-worth, build self-sufficiency, and visualize a brighter future for themselves.

The holistic health workshops Akhila Health offers have helped our female participants access a range of healing modalities and stress management tools. These tools, in turn, empower them to manage, cope with, and overcome their current situation . . . We are grateful for our partnership and look forward to continuing to work together to support and empower the women in our community who experience homelessness.

Your workshops are always organized to encourage engagement. This is fantastic because participants can begin to practice using the tools they are learning about right away! I love that they can measure the difference in stress levels (for example) between start of workshop and end of workshop! They always leave feeling better than when they came!
