Last year I became a Heart of Haiti ambassador because I wanted to give back to Haiti and her people. This year I am using the energy I stirred up within myself as a Heart of Haiti ambassador to teach an online yoga and meditation class on January 12 from 7:00 am to 7:15 am ET that will encourage you to open your heart to helping the people of Haiti as they rebuild their lives and country after the earthquake that happened on January 12, 2010. Click on the link to participate in the class: http://stickam.com/anandaleeke. If you miss the live class, check out the video on the same site.
During my work week, I have an opportunity to remember Haiti and her people as I walk to and from work through the Crystal City underground in Crystal City, Virgina. A series of FotoWeekDC 2010 photos taken during the Haitian earthquake on January 12, 2010, greet me each day. See photo above. They remind me how connected we are through our humanity and the power we each have to help another person.

In honor of Dr. King’s Day of Service, I am sharing information about two free online yoga classes I am teaching to celebrate Yoga Day USA (www.yogadayusa.org), an annual campaign created by the Yoga Alliance (www.yogaalliance.org) that strives to make yoga more accessible. My class schedule is below.

The classes will focus on the practice of karuna (Sanskrit word that means compassion). They will also honor the people of Haiti and everyone affected by the January 12th earthquake.
