Review for International Association for Human Values, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It was so rewarding to offer a service that was so needed and yet so rare - we gave people practical tools including yoga, breathing techniques, meditation to help Katrina survivors overcome the stress of the hurricane and get back to their lives.

Many people we taught said that they were getting the best sleep they had since the hurricane. We also taught the staff of other nonprofits to help them not get burnt out. We taught all the 911 first responders. We helped turn a free lunch program ran by another nonprofit into a half day kids camp.
