Off the Mat

Yoga-infused personal and professional development 

Choose + Connect + Lead

Off the Mat is a series of workshops created to take the benefits of yoga into every area of your life. It's a personal journey to look honestly at who you are, what you want, and how you can get it. This stuff goes deep, but it also stays physical and fun. And like all exercises, you get what you put into it, so we invite you to put in some muscle, some humor, a touch of humility, and a super open mind. You will walk away feeling more capable, more connected and ready to lead!


Build your 2020 Yoga Series

Congratulations! You’ve gotten yourself a new year! What are you going to give it - and what are you going to get from it? Off the Mat is starting 2020 with a series of six classes designed to strengthen your booty and focus your brain. Each 75-minute class includes 45 minutes of yoga and 30 minutes of reflection, discussion and planning designed to close out 2019, think big for 2020, then build the intentions and skills to make it happen. Whether you come to all six or just drop in for one, your participation gets you a discount on our first Off the Mat retreat of 2020.

Off the Mat Retreat: 2/29-3/1 2020

Get the full Off the Mat experience of Choose, Connect and Lead in an immersive and reflective space. This Leap Day we will host our first weekend retreat in the Texas Hill Country. In addition to the workshops we will have time to explore the grounds of the beautiful Samadhi Yoga retreat, enjoy fresh, delicious meals, and build community with folks looking to live an empowered and fulfilling life.


NOTE: This stuff is absolutely transformative, but also there is no way to spend that much time with Kim and Gillian without things getting at least moderately silly and incredibly fun.

I walked away with the feeling that I can do things in a real way; I feel powerful stepping off the mat.”

It was mental muscle training!

I have been to a lot of yoga seminars and this is not the same old nonsense.”

[The workshop] gives you tools to step out of your comfort zone in a safe setting that can help you when you are out in the world.”

Gillian Brockett

Gillian Brockett has never taken her yoga practice too seriously. She just practices, co-owns, and teaches yoga at Modo Yoga Austin. She also parents, builds stuff, leads retreats in Texas and abroad, and constantly reminds everyone that they don't have to do stuff that sucks.
