Executive Director Rob Schware talks with clinical psychologist and yoga therapist Dr. Lauren Rubenstein for The Huffington Post Blog on the joys and challenges of bringing yoga to impoverished Haitian children.
“(A) Haitian social worker joined the team meeting on our last night. He said he had been watching us interact with the children all week, and saw that ours was ‘no small work.’ He witnessed the connections we made and explained how little adult attention these kids get, with their parents out all day looking for work or a meal. He felt that the kids were benefiting ‘in their mind, their bodies and their hearts.’
