THE AZAHAR FOUNDATION
Renowned senior Jivamukti teacher Yogeswari is the founder and president of AZAHAR Foundaton. Based at the Jivamukti Yoga Center in New York
AZAHAR Foundation's mission is to contribute to a world culture of peace through the practices of Yoga, Meditation and the Arts, supported by methodologies such as:
non-violent communication, conflict resolution and trauma psychology.
Within any population we teach, young leaders are identified and supported with professional training to become positive models of change within their communities. Through the conflict resolution and peace-building techniques of Yoga and the Arts, the escalating cycle of violence in conflict and post-conflict settings can be broken and recovery and rehabilitation can begin.
