history

In 2018, previously known as the Calm with Kalaa Initiative, Mindful Kala was founded by Shruti Parthasarathy, a student at Yale University. Noticing a divide in cultural conversations and stigma around mental health, Mindful Kala was created with hopes to bring a unique art form to the forefront of mindfulness conversations. After launching our initial programs at a local Midwestern middle school, we have grown to have over 550 participants - ranging from K-12 students to university students & faculty across the nation.
