Women recovering from Domestic Violence living in Shelters in Mexico City

  • Kundalini Beyond Borders
  • Teaching or serving women


Economist, former executive from a banking corporation, I’ve worked for 13 years in the financial market. Two years ago I surrendered to my soul calling and started doing SEVA giving Kundalini Yoga in a Shelter for Women Survivor of Domestic Violence in Mexico City.

This represented a turning point in my career and I’ve decided to specialize myself in Women’s health issues through Yoga (Stress and Trauma), Natural Gynecology and Ayurveda. I am currently teaching Kundalini Yoga classes and workshops for women on self care practices and giving private consultations on Natural Gynecology.

I am a certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher and I have been teaching yoga in shelters for two years. This grant will support the expansion of these classes to more shelters in Mexico City. The women in the shelter are high-risk women who needed to leave their homes and protect themselves and their children from abuse. We will expand the weekly classes to two more woman’s shelters and do it for another 15 months.

Ariane Mesquita and her team are trained in this work and with this grant will serve many more women who are working to uplift their lives and the lives of their children.
