Santosha Wellness is Kalamazoo’s first children’s wellness center. Located directly off of US – 131 in Kalamazoo, Santosha Wellness gives the opportunity for Kalamazoo area parents to put their children’s health first.
The name Santosha is significant to our philosophy and our work with children. Santosha is a yoga sanskirt word that means contentment. It’s interpreted as”the underlying joy that cannot be shaken by life’s tough moments, by injustice, hardship, bad luck.” Essentially, Santosha is about accepting your current self as it is without only thinking about the changes that you want to happen in the future; loving who you are and where you are in the moment before you seek to make a change. And here at Santosha Wellness, we want everyone who walks through our doors to know they are worthy, they are enough, and they are deserving of joy.
