Intellectually supported by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and empowered by generous donations and long-term financial partners, Blu Matter Project is an innovative not-for-profit organization that provides qualified applicants with the opportunity to discover the benefits of yoga without the financial burden.
At a time when we are witnessing various cuts to public mental health care, Blu Matter Project is stepping in to help support this gap. Our program facilitates real change by encouraging individuals to find a sense of balance through their yoga practice.
Where did the name “Blu Matter Project” come from?
At BMP, we believe in a science-based approach to wellness; “blu matter” refers to the brain and its ability to change; the reference to “blue” also refers to depression and feeling down. We chose the word “project” to refer to the fact that we’re all working on ourselves constantly, just like a project that is never complete – and the conversation around mental health will also take hard work and focus like any other project.
