om thrive's mission is to make regular and sustained yoga practice accessible to survivors and individuals directly affected by domestic violence to promote healing and empowerment. om thrive provides free yoga classes at domestic violence shelters for adults, teens and children. This project collaborates with yoga studios to make sustained yoga practice available to victims and survivors of domestic violence. Providing opportunities for participants to attend the yoga studio and classes of their choice at no charge to them, om thrive envisions a community that gives survivors of domestic violence access to a healing yoga practice compatible with their personal living circumstances and responsibilities. Through the healing power of yoga practice, om thrive is committed to breaking the cycle of domestic abuse, encouraging positive change.
