CHANGE FROM THE INSIDE OUT


Yoga is a powerful path of personal transformation that brings our mind, body and spirit towards union. It opens our hearts and expands our awareness to create space for deep change in our lives. This transformation then takes place externally, to expand outward to local and global communities. 

CHANGE FROM THE INSIDE OUT


Yoga is a powerful path of personal transformation that brings our mind, body and spirit towards union. It opens our hearts and expands our awareness to create space for deep change in our lives. This transformation then takes place externally, to expand outward to local and global communities. 

OUR THEORY OF CHANGE

We believe it takes radical self-inquiry, collaboration, and conscious action to transform the world and ourselves, so our training programs involve these aspects of a theory of change, led by the philosophy of Off The Mat global.

Radical Self-Inquiry

We see self-inquiry as the vital starting point to engaging in the world in an honest and effective way. This is a lifelong process that asks us to be accountable for how we tend to our own pain, bias and limitations with compassion so that it does not get in the way of our engagement. We work within in a trauma-informed perspective that places the mind-body connection as central to self-awareness, healing and self-responsibility. We stand for self-empowerment, and self- determination for all.

Collaboration

In all levels of our work we stand for creative collaboration as a model of sharing power and embracing our unique skills and individual voices. We reclaim the power of embodied self-expression and ritual as a potent tool for building community. We embrace inclusivity as the foundation of having a robust, nuanced, and diverse conversation that does not shy away from conflict or disagreement but rather sees it as an opportunity to birth creative solutions. 

Conscious Action

We promote purpose-driven service that comes from the inside out and  is based in relationships that are mutual. Conscious activism honours interconnections and is informed by awareness and critical thinking around social justice issues. It takes into consideration individual accessibility, community impact and global implications. Our impact is amplified when we can harness collective action that is grounded in alliance building and sustained by our practice of yoga and mindfulness.
