RA MA Foundation, launched in 2016, advances social change that contributes to a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world by providing access and scholarships to the tools of Yoga, Meditation and Wellness. Founded by Guru Jagat, Founder of RA MA Institute for Applied Yogic Science in Venice, California and Mallorca, Spain, RA MA Foundation empowers underserved populations and communities in crisis.
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.
RA MA Foundation, founded by Guru Jagat, also founder of RA MA Institute of Applied Yogic Science and RA MA TV, was formed with the belief that Yoga, Meditation and Wellness are tools that are required for living in the modern world.
Underserved populations and communities in crisis do not have access to the modalities and techniques Yoga provides and it’s the mission of Guru Jagat and RA MA Foundation to change that.
She is the internationally celebrated author of Invincible Living, a candid and encouraging guide for both inner and outer transformation.
