It's always so much fun when I can finally share what's been cooking behind the scenes for months and months. Maybe you’ve been following the countdown on social media--we've had fabulous blogger partners reviewing this new CD and giving away a free Mindful Moment for the past ten days--and release day is finally here! I'm really proud of this one: I’ve been working with children, yoga, music and mindfulness for a decade now, and it all comes together in this new album out today: Mindful Moments for Kids.
It’s a collection of 30 one-minute mindfulness exercises for kids: my simple voiceover instructions, set to a backdrop of my original songs. They’re quick and fun--these are not meditations with a capital M, if you know what I mean. They’re simple and lighthearted: "Hot Chocolate," and "Bear Breath" are calming, "Kindness" and "Today I'm Going To Be..." help kids develop self-awareness and compassion; "Get Your Grumpies Out" helps get rid of stress. Active Mindful Moments like “Rainstorm,” and "Stop and Go" help kids improve their focus, and energizing ones like "Lion Breath" and "Hot Soup!" help kids harness positive, focused energy.
You and your child can do these any time, anywhere--they're perfect in the classroom or at home, and great for in the car. I know you can find ONE MINUTE to pause, breathe, and smile! Yes, YOU. Listen to, and buy, the entire album here on my music page. It's a perfect gift for your child’s teacher, your friend with toddlers, and for yourself and your kids.
Good for today only, grab your free Mindful Moment--"Send Good Thoughts." It's one of my favorites, as it really helps kids develop self-awareness and compassion. And please get in touch and let me know how you're using them with your kids!
