Sweet Om Alabama (SOA) Mission

The formal mission of SOA is to cultivate the health and well-being of Alabamians by mobilizing the community to bring the benefits of yoga to those who lack access. We will do this by providing yoga classes to partner non-profit organizations whose clients lack knowledge of the benefits of yoga and lack the ability to go to classes in studios, gyms or similar venues. 

Membership dues for SOA will support volunteer teachers’ travel, ongoing training and education and the purchase of class supplies, as well as administrative expenses such as printing materials to market the benefits of yoga at free community events and creating the resource website to link students to teachers and studios.
