About this event

Caregivers face significant stress and spend a lot of time in a state of " fight or flight". Chronic stress takes a devastating toll on our physical health and mental well-being that can lead to stress induced health conditions like inflammation, heart disease, anxiety and depression. If you are feeling exhausted, stressed out, and overwhelmed you are not able to offer your high quality care to others. Studies have shown that when Caregivers are able to better care for themselves, they can offer better quality care to those they car for. This is one of the few things that we as Caregivers can have a direct impact.

We invite you to join our online Caregiver Kula, or intentional community of the heart to take micro-steps to relax and nourish your mind, body, and spirit. We have cultivated am empowering community that is supported by our care partners comprised of yoga teachers and wellness practitioners . Many of our volunteers are or have been a caregiver or have been touched by the caregiving experience in some way.

We are proud to parter with the Caregiver Wellness Collective Inc. which aims to make wellness education and services accessible and inclusive for all Caregivers, regardless of race/ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, income level, body size, or disability status. Our primary goal is to empower Caregivers with tools to build the resilience needed for sustainable caregiving.
