Kivulini is a safe healing space operated by Immigrants and people of color to bring trauma-informed yoga and movements to one another and the community.
The space hosts a bi-weekly support group for new Mainers that guides us through the complex and necessary healing process within a community of survivors.
The programs also tell stories that contribute to understanding African immigrants’ experiences of violence and mental illnesses and the role of stigma during the help-seeking process.
Our yoga studio is donation based to make it more accessible to more people.
Our community outreach works hand in hand with other organizations and agencies to bridge the cultural gap and educate our communities about the services available to them in Maine. Our approach is participating, connecting, partnering, and contributing to a sustainable livelihood and a safe and happy society. We are currently working with the following agencies;
We work with schools to support and encourage teenagers to stay and succeed in school, address girls' health and well-being, and foster girls' agency and confidence to help them engage in school activities and pursue their dreams.
The program also provides tools for assertive communication, boundary setting, self-care, and self-defense.
In spring, we provide self-empowerment classes for ESOL young women at the south Portland school.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and make trauma-informed yoga accessible to everyone. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
We are always excited and looking for volunteers, Interns, and yoga teachers willing to join our team at our South Portland office. We promise professional growth, community, laughter, and diverse learning.
