A COAST TO COAST TOUR CRAFTED TO INSPIRE
Inspire hope • Inspire action • Inspire change
Sound Voyage combines ancient practice with modern technology by incorporating noise-isolating, glowing headphones by Soundoff™ Experience and the sounds of DJ Karri Om. Her passion is to sound design your yoga experience – seamlessly mixing genres that take you to a place inside your soul, back to your heart, and back to LOVE. Tune in while she creates an atmosphere filled with beats and rhythms that are sure to guide your yoga flow. Listen here for a taste!
Lovetree Co. malas are hand-knotted with the intent of spreading LOVE with each and every bead. What began as a hobby by co-founder, Karri Cole, Lovetree Co. quickly turned into a full women empowerment project when she joined forces with Matthew van Rooyen. It was created to bring their worlds together, all while empowering women from difficult backgrounds in India. The entire collection will be on display throughout the tour. Have a favorite stone? Message Lovetree Co. here – let us know and we will try to have it for you!

Join with us, Matthew & Karri, as we journey across the US spreading the word about our charitable work in India and Nepal.
Our story begins with a passion to build community and make the world a better place through empowerment. In 2015, Matthew was in Nepal helping with the earthquake relief and I was in Miami, FL just wanting to be a part of something … BIGGER.
I wanted to work with a grassroots organization where I felt like I could be connected to a project, even though I was on the other side of the world. I started to think how can I get involved, what can I do? Khusi Hona’s mission statement of envisioning a world where the cycle of poverty is replaced by a cycle of progress struck a chord with me. This was exactly what I was looking for. This was something I could get behind.
Since DJing and creating events come naturally to me, the next step was obvious. I combined all of the things I love – music, yoga, malas and people. The Bungalow Jam – Benefit for Nepal was created from a simple desire to help. That event changed my life – it changed our lives. We now want to share our passion with anyone and everyone we can.
So often we want to get involved and make an impact in the world, but we’re quick to overlook our own talents and our own network. Be bold, be awesome and step out of the box! Community building and change begins with us – begins with YOU.
We would love to come to your town, share our story, jam out, do some yoga and empower our communities — at home and abroad. The journey begins August 2017 with a coast to coast tour with more than 50 stops. We hope you will be a part of it, see you soon!
Karri & Matthew
