Off the Mat, Into the World

When AIDS was first detected in 1984, there were 41 reported cases in th U.S. And now, 23 years later, more than 40 million people are infected worldwide.

There is no vaccine - no cure. But thankfully, there is an organization called YouthAids. It is an HIV/AIDS education and prevention program that targets youths between the ages of 15-24 with positive, upbeat messages of abstinence, and consistent and correct condom use.

Seane Corn, a well-known yoga instructor, believes in Karma Yoga - the practice of serving others.

Ashley Judd, a well-known actress, who was diagnosed bipolar, found that yoga benefits her mind more than any prescription pills.

Together, with their love of yoga, they began the "Off the Mat, Into the World," campaign to benefit YouthAIDS. They created organic cotton "Off the Mat, Into the World" t-shirts. You can order them for $32 with 100% of the sales going towards YouthAids.

It's a great way to activate our heartfelt intentions beyond the yoga room and extend them to the world outside. All the feelings of love, compassion, strength, mindfulness, and gratitude - they can be used as fuel for spiritual activism.
