Off the Mat, Into the World is a yoga workshop that applies the principles of yoga to community building and activism projects. Starting with self-empowerment, the program emphasizes communication and leadership skills. These core teachings are designed to help tackle social justice issues, create a community of yogis, and collaborate with local organizations to take action. Develop relationships with like-minded people in the Lake Tahoe/Squaw Valley region, choose from a variety of training programs, and turn mindful exercise into conscious action and grassroots change.
