Yoga, Purpose & Action Intensive

Intensive Price Tiers: One of the ways Off the Mat stands for equality and access for all is by creating a pricing tier structure that invites participants to pay based on their income level. This way, people who can pay more “pay it forward” by supporting those who can’t. Please consider what is truly sustainable for you, and choose a price that feels in integrity: $1,350 Supporter (support other leaders as well as yourself); $1050 Sustainer (pays for you); $750 Community (discounted fee). Scholarships are available.

To register, please call 877.944.2002.

A presentation to some business people,” I say, hoping to make it sound uninteresting so the driver will leave me alone.  He doesn’t take the hint. “Oh yeah? What’s it about?” More
