Intensive Price Tiers*

One of the ways Off The Mat stands for equality and access for all is by creating a pricing tier structure that invites participants to pay based on their income level. This way, people who can pay more “pay it forward” by supporting those who can’t. Please consider what is truly sustainable for you, and choose a price that feels in integrity. Registration for this event is open now.

$1350 Supporter (support other leaders as well as yourself)
$1050 Sustainer (pays for you)
$750 Community (discounted fee)

*An important part of justice is access. OTM stands for leveraging privilege to support others. If you can afford to pay any amount above the discounted fee, please consider doing so. This allows OTM to continue to scale the prices of their intensives so that everyone is included.
