There will be a yoga class for Haiti this Friday evening at the Yoga Barn, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. All levels are welcome and wanted in the class led by Mollie Doyle.

Class is free, but every dollar donated, up to $1,500 will be matched by the Yoga Barn for the people of Haiti, through Partners In Health (, which is providing medical care, food, shelter and aid to the people through its existing clinics in Haiti.

Organizers write: “We want to pack the barn, sending not just dollars, but energy and love from our amazing community.” If you cannot make it on Friday, there will be a donation box at the Yoga Barn until the following Friday, Feb. 5.

Also, a four-and-a-half-year-old Haitian orphan will be joining the Island community, joining her Vineyard family earlier than expected due to the earthquake. Clothing donations can be dropped off at the Yoga Barn.
