YOGA & WELLNESS
Edeyo founder, Unk Ernest, traveled to Haiti with a yoga instructor to teach the children the fundamentals of yoga. It was quite difficult to be able to pre-determine how the children would react to the Yoga sessions but, against all odds, they were extremely receptive.
The goal of the Yoga & Wellness workshops is to instill self-love, cooperation, and wellness education through the practice of Yoga, among the children of the school. Volunteers from NY currently maintain our yoga program. Our goal is to integrate yoga into our full-time curriculum. more pictures >>
