How you can help raise money for Haiti AND kick-start your yoga for 2010

I haven't had much to say here about the terrible situation in Haiti. There really isn't much to say that hasn't already been said, although I have been more talkative over at Twitter where I've been sharing good the good advice I get from experts in the field about the best ways to respond and help.

I'd like to be able to give more money to the most credible organisations helping with the emergency response in Haiti. So I've decided to re-offer my "Energising and opening" 40 minute yoga video, plus weekly support for the next 30 days to kick start your yoga practice. All for only $50.

All proceeds from anyone who signs up today will go to Haiti via Oxfam. I choose Oxfam because I've worked with them, know them well and have utter confidence in their ability on the ground. I also choose Oxfam because they have been working in Haiti for some time and already have people, relationships and resources on the ground. But there are many other good, solid organisations already working in Haiti who are also well placed to respond.

You get all the support you need to start your year with yoga – which means with well-being, balance and focus – and we both get to help people who deserve all that we can do and more.

I was inspired to make this offer by Danielle La Porte, who inspired, and Kelly Diels, who initiated, the Help Haiti Blog Challenge.

    You are an amazing person. I am advocating Oxfam in various groups on LinkedIn. Some people just don’t know where to donate.

    Hi Mariane,

    This is the best Yoga practice that anyone can incorporate into their everyday life anywhere in the world, without the hassle of finding time for a class that suits their lifestyle.
    Thankyou so much for the video- I recomended my friend Lily to take up your class. I actually started last wednesday, only could do 25mins, but now it is such a breeze knowing that i feel more alive and energized to open up my heart to the rest of the world. It’s becoming a regular practice for me since i’ve started.
