Starting in 2015 we are excited to be offering a Red Tent Women's Circle. In the last decade, there has been a resurgence of The Red Tent. Women are rediscovering this ancient tradition and finding it to be a positive, insightful and nurturing monthly ritual.

I am thrilled to welcome Bri Dredge as a guest blogger for YogaHara. Bri is a primary school teacher and shares with her students some of the gifts yoga has given her. Read what she has to say about kids and yoga. Enjoy, with Love.

Yoga in Education ... Ramblings of a Primary School Teacher

I have always been in awe of the boundless energy and resilience that appears to be innate in children. Characteristics I try to rebuild within myself through regular yoga practice, both at home and with my brilliant and inspiring teachers.

I am so honoured to have Paul share his beautiful writing with us. Please enjoy, with love.

We are called again and again into the grace of living.

This precious invitation is constant. It is not that we don’t know the spacious ease of freedom … we feel it all the time. We feel it in the warm glance of our beloved, in the first soft openings of a new day, standing before a stunning work of art, or transfixed before a sunset. 

Afterwards we may say ‘Oh that was beautiful’ and move on, but if we are curious, we might notice something else at play.

Meditation and Yoga go hand it hand. In fact, many people don't see it as Yoga AND Meditation at all but as one and the same. It really doesn't matter, meditation has a hold in the west and all I can say is, it's about time!
