CREATING COMMUNITY, INSPIRING CONNECTION, AND PROVIDING ACCESS TO YOGA.
We exist to fulfill one simple purpose: to make our community a better place.
How do we do that? By providing yoga & the benefits it provides to the entire community. Because we believe that yoga is designed for any body and every body.
What We Do
Communinty Outreach: we want to provide access to yoga to all. In addition to providing donation-based community classes, you can find us hosting outreach programs for those who might not have access to yoga, such as the Fort Wayne Boy's and Girl's Club and the local Air Force Base.
Why? Because we believe in the healing power of yoga!

Sarah Evans is passionate about the health and wellbeing industry. She is a Registered Nurse with Cardiovascular Intensive Care experience, the owner of a massage studio and has worked as a Massage Therapist since 1998. She is the co-owner of a local yoga studio and has completed the highest level of training (F.I.T. to Lead) through the Baptiste Yoga Institute. Her love of yoga comes from not only the wide ranging health benefits, but also it's ability to create connection between people and develop powerful leaders. She founded 3 Rivers Yoga Foundation to strengthen our community by connecting people through a shared experience and making yoga accessible to anyone, anywhere. She currently serves as the President of the organization.
Mitch is an Automation Engineer who focuses on robotics and safety. He is fitness oriented and in his free time enjoys snowboarding, cycling, and swimming. His love of yoga comes from the mindful breath and how breath paired with movement can be a powerful meditation. Through the foundation, his goals are to promote self care and empower people to find healing in their physical and emotional lives.
"I am involved with 3 Rivers Yoga so that I can be a part of something bigger... to give back to our community by providing something that has been so impactful to me personally."
Monica Sullivan has been practicing yoga for close to 15 years, but learned how impactful yoga can be when she was introduced to Baptiste yoga about five years ago. While yoga was initially a form of exercise, she has now learned it is so much more. Monica’s entire career has been in Human Resources; she is currently Vice President, Human Resources at Zimmer Biomet. Her hobbies include reading, exercising, decorating and baking. Above all, her passion is her two small children.
Sarah is a Fort Wayne native & digital marketing specialist who works with several local nonprofit and for-profit organizations to implement social media into their marketing strategy. When she's not working or practicing yoga, Sarah enjoys spending time with her husband and son, and traveling the world. Her goal is to become a Registered Yoga Teacher someday, and she assists the Foundation with social media & digital marketing strategy because she believes that everyone in northeast Indiana should have access to yoga!
Although Kathy loves practicing and teaching yoga, she wears a variety of hats in the community! From managing a locally owned construction company and volunteering her time for fundraising with another local non for profit and assisting her husband Jason with his ground maintenance company. She is also the mother of 3 very active teens, 2 boys, Nathan and Luke and 1 girl, Jessica, and wife to Jason since 2002! Kathy has a bachelors degree in psychology from Taylor University with minors in social work and education and a hefty collection of leadership trainings and certifications from her years in radio, finance management and sales. When she isn’t pouring her heart into her family, work, the love of yoga and volunteering, you can find her at many local community events around town including live music events, concerts or traveling with family and friends! Adventure and community is top priority for Kathy!
