Off the Mat, Into the World® (OTM) is dedicated to bridging yoga and activism. Founded in 2007 by Seane Corn, Hala Khouri and Suzanne Sterling, OTM’s mission is to use the power of yoga to inspire conscious, sustainable activism and ignite grassroots social change.

OTM helps individuals take the path of yoga “off the mat and into the world,” expanding the sphere of change outward to local and global communities. We do this by facilitating personal empowerment through leadership trainings, fostering community collaboration, and initiating local and global service projects.

Urban Zen Foundation is dedicated to integrating eastern healing techniques with western medicine to treat the patient, their loved ones and caregivers. The Urban Zen Integrative Therapy (UZIT) Program trains members of the healthcare and yoga communities in the healing modalities of yoga therapy, Reiki, essential oil therapy, nutrition and contemplative care. Each modality is introduced separately and then students are taught how to integrate the modalities to address those symptoms the patient or client is experiencing: PANIC™ (pain, anxiety, nausea, insomnia and constipation) and exhaustion. The objective of the UZIT program is to provide integrative therapists in hospitals, outpatient care centers, support groups, private practices, corporate environments, nursing and medical schools to transform healthcare to include eastern healing techniques with western medicine.
