We are delighted to hold conversation with Simon Low, Vikki Stevenson and Ruth McNeil on our podcast episode 8 to talk about the Yoga Garden Party, a yoga festival that raises funds for The Hope Foundation (www.thehopefoundation.org.uk) which supports street-connected children and vulnerable communities in Kolkata, India.The event has been running for 10 years and has now raised in excess of £100,000 for the charity.

In June last year, due to the devastating effects of both the Covid-19 pandemic and a super-cyclone which hit Kolkata in May, the event went virtual with classes running online via Zoom. Simon, Ruth and Vikki were due to be taking their second yoga trip to Kolkata this January, raising further much needed funds for HOPE. Due to the ongoing pandemic this trip has had to be postponed, but they have decided instead to again bring some of the UK’s best loved yoga teachers directly to your homes as part of Yoga for HOPE offering yoga classes throughout January.

Podcast reviews:

“Always enlightening and interesting! Good for the soul – friendly, inclusive, informative and caring, like a warm hug from a good friend. What more could you want from a podcast?”

“Fantastic podcast. Wonderful interesting subjects and very enjoyable to listen to.”

“Incredible!!! Spirituality plus real life, sprinkled with a huge dose of love. This podcast will speak to your soul. Raw, authentic and honest. Despite how it’s commercially depicted, yoga isn’t some contortionist act or sweating in a studio. Nor is it a group hippies chanting. Yoga is life. This podcast is an absolute blessing!!”
