Stress Management and Holistic Health Services for Underserved Women

Akhila Health provides stress management and holistic health workshops to underserved and low-income women, helping them overcome life’s challenges and rise out of hardship. We focus on the entire self - body, mind, and spirit - empowering women to gain a new sense of ownership of their lives and create long term permanent change.

By partnering with other nonprofit community organizations, we're able to reach women where they are already accessing community support services. We offer our 25+ weeks of holistic health programming to our partners free of charge.

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 well-being. 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!
