Off The Mat Colorado
in Collaboration with
Off the Mat, Into the World™
We Make service fun, easy and accessible to the yoga community.
Join us once a month, once a quarter or once a year. Our events are open to everyone. We host volunteer and service experiences in Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins. Our longest running project started in 2012 when a group of yoga students were looking for a way to give back to our community and meet like minded people. Since then our group has welcomed hundreds of volunteers to serve several local nonprofit organizations.
We seek to inspire and support yogis to take their asana yoga practice off the mat and into the world. We bring the community together around the practice of karma yoga and facilitate volunteer and service experiences. We support and inspire conscious, sustainable service projects to create positive social change.
Off The Mat Colorado volunteers provide, prepare and serve breakfast to 30-40 youth at the Urban Peak overnight shelter.
