Tibetan monks go on walking meditations regularly. It is just like a sitting meditation and brings about the same benefits, but the body is moving in space.

This week in my yoga class we were practicing the group tree pose, sometimes referred to as "forest" by us. It was a lot of fun to watch some of the 3-year olds try it for the first time :)

We create peace with my preschool yoga students. Three times: 1) for us and our families, 2) for our schools and cities, 3) for the whole Earth. Following the example of middle school students in Southern California and yoga teachers. The energy is gathered and then let go at the very end with the "yey"! These kids are 4-6 years old.
