- Off the Mat
To inspire all yogis to expand their asana (physical) practices by reaching beyond a pose on a 2′x 6′ mat and into underprivileged and underserved communities throughout the world.
Yogis throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, from a variety of studios and traditions, join hands, hearts, and consciousness to create the strength and the prayer that comes from sangha, from togetherness.
100% of donations support Off the Mat, Into the World’s Legacy Projects in India. In 2012, One Love raised $60,000 for grass roots organizations in Kolkata, India that work to rescue, rehabilitate and empower those effected by the sex trafficking industry. On our tour of the organizations in February, one in particular pulled at our hearts, Women’s Interlink. They wish to build a 3rd floor to their housing facility in Kolkata that is home to girls from infant to 18 years old. Most of the girls have been rescued from sex trafficking, some at the age of 8. Others have been surrendered by prostitute mothers hoping their child will have a better life and not be forced into the trade. Our goal is to provide them this addition so they save and nurture more precious souls. Estimated building costs: $55,000
