yoga reaches out & makes a difference

Want to make a difference? Sarah Gardner does too. Read more about her and why she created the first ever annual Yoga Reaches Out Yogathon, which takes place Sept. 19, 2010 in Foxboro, MA.
Life is about taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary. I have gotten to a point in
my life (it took me 40 years) to realize that it is not about me. It’s about how I can
make a difference. I created Yoga Reaches Out to make a difference by bringing people
together that love yoga, and want to take their passion and use that energy to give
back. For me, what happens on the mat is my inhale. Yoga Reaches Out is my exhale.
I envisioned this event to be a beautiful flow of over 1,000 people who were committed
to bringing their level of yoga to a level of service. I am completely overwhelmed with
the support and enthusiasm of my friends, family and the yoga community.
an extraordinary day of yoga
September 19, 2010 is going to be an extraordinary day. We have created the possibility
of bringing the yoga community together in the name of seva (selfless service). I am all
about being unreasonable. Unreasonable to create a yogathon at Gillette stadium,
unreasonable to want to raise a million dollars to help children in need, unreasonable to
want over 1,000 yogis practicing together. Unreasonable that I am asking the yoga
community to help fill the field. There are many ways to spread the word: yoga studios,
Facebook, friends, family, local community, etc. The unreasonable part involves following
up, making phone calls, empowering others, believing in the cause, knowing that you
really are a crucial member of this team. You make a difference.
The Yoga Reaches Out Yogathon together with Global Mala Boston is being held from
9-5 PM on Sunday, September 19th at Gillette Stadium?s Field House in Foxboro, MA to benefit Children?s Hospital Boston and Yoga for Single Moms. It will be a day to remember, a
day to make a difference. Join over 1,000 yogis to practice with Ana Forrest,
Wade Imre Morissette, New England?s celebrity presenters, and live music by nationally
and locally known artists. For more information and to register, please visit www.yogareachesout.org.
