Rob Schware

Rob Schware, PhD, heads the Give Back Yoga Foundation and the Yoga Service Council and writes for The Huffington Post Blog.

In late 2006, Rob brought his two decades of management experience with the World Bank to a second career: helping to grow the yoga service movement. He wanted to combine his development and project management expertise in over 30 countries including India, Indonesia, Turkey, Rwanda and Palestine with his passion for yoga, by forming an organization whose mission it is to bring yoga to underserved populations. In 2013, his work of co-founding and furthering the Give Back Yoga Foundation earned him the International Association of Yoga Therapists’ Karma Yoga Award for “extraordinary selfless service in reducing suffering and elevating consciousness through yoga.”

He has been married to Alice Trembour for 32 years, which, like yoga, is in and of itself a regular commitment to a practice. They have three children.
