When we created the Movement for Meaning, we never dreamed we would have such an incredible outpouring of support.
For the 1 in 3 women who will experience domestic violence in her lifetime, having access to Exhale to Inhale classes can mean the difference between just surviving and truly thriving. Your support is changing lives, every day. Thank you for your investment in healing women in our community.
What does this mean to the women you're helping? Let them tell you themselves:
"I guess yoga is about getting to know yourself . . . we treat our bodies so badly and this feels like I'm treating my body right. You know, I actually feel like somebody now." – student from Food First.
"After the trauma I experienced, my body closed down. The practice of yoga physically helped me but also using the breath to really spread the stability has been night and day." – student from Connect NYC.
"I come to yoga classes because they make me feel better. We keep it in and yoga is a way to release and feel free." – student from Connect NYC.
"My yoga practice gave me the compassion and release I needed to begin loving myself enough to take control of my life." – survivor and Exhale to Inhale volunteer
Thank you for envisioning a world where survivors feel empowered to transform their lives and supported in stepping outside the cycle of violence.
