Sarah Gardner is the founder of Yoga Reaches Out (YRO). In 2010 she created Yoga Reaches Out to make a difference by bringing people together who love yoga, and want to take their passion and use that energy to give back. Sarah has been a personal trainer for over 20 years and when she discovered yoga eleven years ago her life completely changed. Yoga brought new joy to her life and became her vehicle for giving back. Yoga Reaches Out brings yogis together who are committed to bringing their level of yoga to a level of service. The YRO Yogathon brings together hundreds of yogis in different parts of America to enjoy a day of yoga, community, seva and fundraising. For Sarah, what happens on her mat is her inhale and Yoga Reaches Out is her exhale. Sarah sees it as a win-win: do what we love to do and pay it forward at the same time to help children in need. YRO has raised well over one million dollars for children’s charities in this country and abroad.
