In the aftermath of Tuesday's 7.0 earthquake in Haiti, many yoga studios, teachers, and practitioners have forces to send aid and help soften the blow of the tragedy. We encourage you to lend your support--monetary contributions, participation in relief events, raise awareness, or simply dedicate a yoga practice--to the people of Haiti.
Below is a list of just a few yoga events that aim to help with the relief effort in Haiti. I know there are many more all over the country. I need your help to publicize other opportunities to get involved!
