Outreach in Haiti
Danielle Travels to HaitiIn December 2012 Danielle and Veronica Rottman brought Yoga and supplies to cancer patients in Cange, Haiti. They were humbled, grateful and thrilled to bring their knowledge and compassion to more under-served around this beautiful planet. Danielle writes,
"We breathed together, bended, lengthened, and swayed together. We drew in breath like we were drinking nectar from the gods themselves and we exhaled like we were letting go of every last worry, complaint, and bit of negativity left in our souls. We didn’t stand on our hands, no one had $100 Yoga pants, a pristine yoga studio, or the perfect bodies for what would be deemed an ideal asana practice. We had conscious breaths, open hearts, relaxed minds and willing bodies. That is all you need. Yoga is free."
