is an international non-profit organization that promotes a peace culture through Yoga, the Arts and supporting methodologies with special attention to disenfranchised communities, and women and children in the Global South and in conflict settings.
AZAHAR means orange blossom. It is a Spanish word of Arabic origin and is symbolic of the cross-cultural juxtapositions that color and flavor our beautiful blue planet. The idea of AZAHAR developed organically with Yogeswari’s life-journey. In 1993, during a Vision Quest in the Native American tradition, the vision for AZAHAR was revealed as working towards peace primarily with women around the world, combining arts and spiritual practices.
