Janet Lowndes and I are very excited to again be leading this retreat in tropical Far North Queensland. The Sanctuary Retreat Centre, set on 50 acres of lush tropical rainforest, overlooks the Coral Sea at Mission Beach and has its own secluded beach. A gorgeous place and time to escape the Victorian winter and a chance to rejuvenate your heart and mind.

This week's reading from Albert Einstein.

These days of Mindful Yoga are a chance to really honour yourself. To look after yourself, to nurture yourself and to spend some time deeply relaxing and resting. Nourishing yourself in this way allows you to let go of any stored tension or emotional stress, filling yourself up with positive energy which can then be shared with those around you.

We had some fantastic Yoga in the Park last week with 25 people coming along on Tuesday night and 18 on Thursday morning. I love practicing outside. It is a completely different practice. Fresh, new and enlivens you in a way that being indoors can't.

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.

Thank you everyone for such a fabulous year. It has been a big year for all of us at YogaHara welcoming new teachers and adding new classes. The biggest change was taking over sole use of the gorgeous space, enabling us to really make it a Yoga Studio.

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.
