Yoga Mission: Healing Haiti

I recently read an article published in the February 2015 issue of Yoga Journal about yoga’s involvement and contribution to the redevelopment of post-earthquake Haiti.  Haiti is still a country in transition and has quite a ways to go in rebuilding its infrastructure and healing its people.  Way back in 2010 among some of the first responders to Haiti’s crisis were yoga teachers who came to share the healing benefits of yoga with a displaced traumatized population.  Many of these organizations continue this work by supporting at-risk youth, women and families and training a future generation of yoga-teachers.  Way to go yogis! -Janice
