How Do You Help Others through Yoga?
As the world is still reeling from the recent tragedy in Haiti I have been moved this week by seeing so many people pull together to find ways to help. In the yoga community, many local yoga studios are offering benefit classes for the victims, clothing collections, and donation funds. I encourage each of you to participate in whatever way you can.
For me, this has also brought up a bigger question that I have had kicking around in my head recently: How can I help?
Not just how can I help with this most recent devastation, but how can I help others in an ongoing way? I know teachers who teach ailing hospital patients, at-risk teens, prisoners, and many others in need. I know its now time for me to take this on as well.
And, for this, I realize I need a bit of guidance and inspiration:
What do you do to help others through your yoga teaching? Were trainings helpful / needed? How did you connect with the people and organizations that you are helping?
