Blu Matter Project is a not-for-profit organization that operates as the liaison between Ambassador Studios and those living with Depression and/or Bipolar Disorder. We provide our recipients with the opportunity to practice at a partnering yoga studio free of charge for a year.
Research shows that a regular yoga practice for people living with depressive disorders may significantly reduce anxiety, stabilize mental activity, enhance brain functioning, improve sleep quality and resiliency to stress (1). Not only do we hope that this project will increase our recipients sense of well-being but it will also alleviate the financial burden of paying for a yoga pass as Depression and/or Bipolar Disorder are both strongly linked to financial issues.
Blu Matter Project is committed to providing tangible solutions to those living with mental illnesses and creating a global conversation about the real-life experiences of mental health for all parties involved. Join the Blu Matter movement – volunteer, donate and participate in a Blu Matter event because your voice matters.
Blu Matter Project’s vision is to generate a stigma-free conversation about the lived realities of mental illness, creating a non-judgmental, global support network.
