Summary

We organize free classes in Nutrition, Dance, Yoga, Pilates, Awareness Through Movement, Tai Chi, Meditation and others for people who are in need of preventive, non-invasive health care or treatment of chronic diseases. Providing individual non-invasive care and building partnerships with free or low cost clinics in Los Angeles to help people who are in need of treatment or health guidance, providing referrals for people in need of alternative practitioners offering free or sliding scale care.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

One of the biggest and most costly aspects of healthcare in Los Angeles is the treatment of chronic diseases. It will be hard to make insurance affordable without changing how chronic disease is treated. This situation puts the low-income families in Los Angeles into an even harder time.Many people, especially youth and seniors, are suffering from chronic diseases like diabetes, asthma and musculoskeletal injury as well as preventable problems including smoking, obesity and physical inactivity.

How will this project solve this problem?

Providing free classes in Nutrition, Dance, Yoga, Pilates, Awareness Through Movement Tai Chi and so on, providing referrals for people in need to practitioners such as free or low cost clinics, cultivating a broad database of self-help techniques, exercises, practitioners and a forum to ask questions and get answers from our professionals. Providing one on one care to those in need of help to be free of chronic pain and conditions in acute manners and getting them to be able to work & function.

Potential Long Term Impact

About 19% population in Los Angeles can get benefits from our program and live a more healthy and happy life, which will decrease individual healthcare spending, change the health condition among low-income families and make those people reached more productive to the society. Lowering healthcare costs from long term disease and obesity. Being healthy effects the mind set of individuals as well and there shows a decrease in violence and crime when people are free of pain and able to contribute.
