A Window Between Worlds

The Travel Yogi will donate a percentage of our 2016 profits to A Window Between Worlds, a nonprofit that uses art to empower women and children who have been impacted by violence and trauma.

Our travel yoga teacher Liz Arch is a proud spokesperson and ambassador for A Window Between Worlds, and a firm believer in the capacity of yoga and art to heal both physical and emotional wounds.


A Window Between Worlds (AWBW) partners with domestic violence shelters, sexual assault agencies, veterans organizations, and other community sites to transform trauma through art — creating a life-changing space for safety, connection, and healing.

AWBW brings its healing art programs to more than 20,700 domestic violence survivors in the greater Los Angeles area and across 32 states. AWBW programs include art workshops, a survivor’s art circle, community engagement, and training for shelter staff/volunteers.

For 25 years, AWBW’s art programs have helped survivors take important steps in the healing journey by expressing their feelings, releasing the past, building confidence, and developing hope.
