Elainia White has a dream for Havelock.

Her dream is to change this, as she calls it, transient community into one that has its people come together. A community she says, "has the potential to make more connections with each other."

White’s plan is to connect Havelock through yoga.

Having suffered from depression and anxiety herself, White knows firsthand the power yoga has to change life.

"Having yoga in my life has totally transformed my outlook on life," she said. "I’m a much happier person."

On Monday nights at 6 p.m., a yoga session above Make it Personally Yours in Havelock takes place. White’s seven students start the class by reading a daily meditation passage from Melody Beattie’s "Journey to the Heart."

As student Molly Millea read from the book, the others sat, eyes closed, on their mats to hear inspiring words about coming to terms with who they are, and liking that person.
