About the event

Founded by Seane Corn, Hala Khouri, & Suzanne Sterling, Off the Mat Into the World® (OTM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to bridging yoga and activism. Founded in 2007, OTM uses the tools of yoga, meditation, and self-inquiry to inspire leaders to create conscious, sustainable change. We define activism as an act of standing for solidarity, equality, justice, and freedom for all. 

Yoga is a tool for change. Rooted in compassion and connection, we are called to awaken to suffering and take action in response, creating a peaceful, just, and connected global community. Graduates of our programs do work ranging from offering yoga to survivors of domestic violence, people in recovery, vulnerable youth and incarcerated people to organizing and educating people around issues of social justice, food justice, and international humanitarian work. OTM leaders embody the idea of taking yoga “off the mat.”
