To raise awareness and funding to rescue, rehabilitate, and empower victims of sex trafficking in India.

A group of yoga teachers and conscious activists in Austin, TX have joined forces to found a non-profit organization called Austin Yoga Tribe. Our mission is to unite the greater yoga community of Austin to work together on a local level to create global change.

Our first big initiative is to raise awareness and funding to rescue, rehabilitate and empower victims of sex trafficking. This is a global issue, and we are partnering with another amazing non-profit organization called Off The Mat & Into the World to direct our efforts to India, where there are estimated to be almost 1 million sex workers, most of which are held against their will, 30% of which are children. The Austin Yoga Tribe is working to raise over $150,000 this year alone towards these efforts. If we reach our fundraising goals, many of us will be able to travel to India next February to work directly with Off The Mat to build a shelter for and and work directly with victims who have been rescued from sex trafficking.
