RA MA Foundation launched in 2016 with a goal of educating a new generation of leaders to hold the reality of world peace, a clean environment, and a more compassionate society.
Founded by Guru Jagat, CEO and Founder of RA MA Institute for Applied Yogic Science & Technology, RA MA Foundation extends the reach of her mission by empowering underserved populations and communities in crisis with wellness techniques, tools and experiences. Learn more about Guru Jagat.
The heart of our mission is to educate people that there is a way to do things differently, to breathe differently, think differently, and be differently. At its core, the wellness industry is an education of what we can do to be better humans, and to feel better so we can do better. That’s what true wellness really is.
Through the Foundation’s programs and initiatives, we empower, educate and inspire people to transcend the negative effects of modern day culture. Using tools like meditation and deep breathing, our strong network of teachers and thought leaders are committed to healing the issues that divide us through simple, easy and useful tools that any individual of any age, any income, any circumstance can take part.
