Akhila Health: Empowering underserved women to be “whole”

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 women living in shelters 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!

Our vision is to bring greater awareness of a holistic approach to health and wellbeing to underserved women. Our transformative program empowers women to take ownership of their lives for long-lasting change.

Why it Matters

How Akhila Health Works

We offer women in shelters 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 living in shelters 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.
