“For me service has been a part of my life since I have been little. My parents have always been involved by volunteering for local events, groups etc, but never internationally. They have always been leading by example and that is one thing that Dana and I have consciously made an effort to do as well for our kids. We want our kids to experience different cultures, by not just being a tourist, but also by being connected through service. For me this type of service allows for those you are serving to directly participate as well, which fosters a relationship and deeper connection.” – Ron RobinsonWhile Ron was making adjustments at the health clinic in town, over at the primary school, another special event was taking place: the kids yoga class. Dana came with great experience teaching yoga to not only kids, but also to pregnant mothers, babies, toddlers, and of course adults too! Dana started her own studio in Crystal Lake, Illinois called Sweet Feet Yoga, which centers around the importance of bringing the benefits of yoga to each stage of life.
“Ron and I both feel so blessed to be gifted with talents and skills that can be shared around the world no matter where we are … We had a great time connecting to the community of Juluchuca through chiropractic and kids’ yoga. The smiles on every person’s face after receiving their first chiropractic adjustment or experiencing the joy of their first kids’ yoga class were priceless. Working as a family to connect and serve others gives us an opportunity to grow closer to each other, as well as closer to others that we may at first think are different from us, but in the end are not so different at all and become people that we care about, pray for, and hope to see many more times in the future. Thank you to everyone there at Playa Viva for an experience of a lifetime. We will definitely be back!” – Dana RobinsonThe girls at the primary school expressed great interest in learning yoga and were overly excited to learn all they could from Dana. At Playa Viva, we are committed to promoting transformational experiences just like the ones mentioned here. We are now working with the community to offer yoga more regularly for Juluchucans (both children and adults!).
It always starts with just one class.
