In 2013, Ayiti Yoga Co.(AYC) co- founded by Danielle Desulme was a platform for predominantly exposing the yoga practice to the Haitian community. It started with developing a mailing list of participating students and emailing a class schedule on a weekly basis. Shortly after, a growing network of teachers in holistic health and wellness started to emerge and AYC expanded its offerings with a variety of successful retreats, events and workshops in and out of Port-au-Prince.
With this growing community interest in not just yoga, but in holistic health overall, AYC seeks to continue in sharing and being a resource for the practice. Interested in various holistic teachings of various modalities and making them available to their students.
Their weekend retreats have become a popular favorite. In 2015, AYC co-organized the first world wide celebration of International Day of Yoga, by offering a free mass class with approximately one hundred persons in attendance. This number doubled in the following year.
Although Danielle's focuses on a more personalised teaching style, she offers classes at her space yogawithdanielle@Morne Calvaire with an emphasis on alignment and safety. Private instruction is offered in private and semi-private (group) sessions for pre and post-natal and therapy based styles for person having limitations or injuries.
