About Away 2 Be

Away 2 Be is on the precipice of a paradigm shift in global innovation.  Our answer to sustainable global change is creating meaningful relationships. We facilitate personal, local and global connections through yoga, educational and corporate consulting and international travel.  We know that in order to resolve the worlds greatest problems, we must begin with ourselves.

Away 2 Be participants are globally-minded and seek to gain a broader perspective of the world while simultaneously creating better relationships with themselves and their local communities.  They embrace people and culture and thrive from new experiences.

We believe stories and empathy are the pathways to peace and global change.  In order to fundamentally shift our current global situation, it is imperative to foster positive relationships with ourselves, our community and eventually, our world. We utilize the “personal, local, global” model to do just that!  Whether you choose a yoga session, a consulting session with your school or staff or an international experience with your friends, family or colleagues, Away 2 Be will provide tools to shift our current perspective and recognize our exponential potential.
