By purchasing yoga clothing from OM Matters, you’re making a difference in kids’ lives. Here are a few of the profound benefits yoga brings to youth:

Higher self-confidence
Healthier coping mechanisms
Help dealing with stress
Better school engagement

 

And for at-risk kids living in impoverished communities, perhaps the most important gift that yoga gives is a place to experience inner and outer silence for a little while. Think about how yoga makes you feel, and project that onto a child who hasn’t necessarily had a lot of comfort in his or her life. Yoga matters.

This is why many leaders are working to provide yoga asana and meditation practices to youth on a larger scale. Through your purchase of our products, you’re helping with that mission. A full 10 percent of your purchase will go directly to fund yoga for youth through our partnerships with on-the-ground organizations. 

 


With your help, we can reach our goal of bringing yoga to 10,000 at-risk youth by 2019.

Together, we can make a difference.
