Yoga class

More than 30,000 Somali immigrants call the Seattle area home. Many are female refugees who fled their war-ravaged homeland to seek safety and a more stable life. But the strains of immigration can be isolating. Enter the Daryel Somali Women's Wellness Project, a yoga, massage-therapy and social support group offered by UW Medicine. Since 2009, Daryel, the Somali word for wellness, has helped women improve their physical and emotional health.
