Yoga for kids: planting the seeds to grow a conscious generation
Rainbow Pammy is sprinkling her mindful magic to all corners of the globe with the release of her first kids yoga video, Bali Jungle Adventure.
“I’m incredibly passionate about the gift of mindfulness and using it as a tool to empowerment for children. It’s a dream come true to be able to finally package my philosophy into a yoga video and share it with families all over the world,” Rainbow Pammy said.
“Yoga is so valuable in a child’s formative years as it’s a time when they’re finding their way in the world physically, mentally and socially. It develops balance, strength, respect and compassion, and it can give children the perspective they need to see things clearly and avoid unnecessary stress.”
Bali Jungle Adventure is reminiscent of one of Rainbow Pammy’s playful kids yoga classes – full of imaginative storytelling, child-friendly yoga poses and lots of animal friends to meet and protect along the way. Stunning Bali visuals bring the jungle story to life and create a sense of wonder.
The half-hour adventure is suitable for children of all ages and offers parents, grandparents, caregivers and educators a yoga teacher at their fingertips.
“For younger children, the video is excellent for balancing their energy, whether it’s helping to manage those crazy bursts, or bringing them out of their shells. For older kids, it gives them the mental break they need to relax from busy school schedules – and it’s healthy and non-competitive. The closing guided meditation works to calm the mind and body, where all thoughts and worries can simply melt away,” Rainbow Pammy said.
Rainbow Pammy’s soothing voice is befitting for guided meditation, lulling listeners to a warm place of comfort where they can float in a sound bath of magical, tinkling Koshi chime music and feel the resonant sound healing of a crystal singing bowl.
“A mother came up to me after a kids yoga class recently and told me that her 10-year-old daughter has been falling asleep quickly and sleeping through the night for the first time ever since listening to my free sleep time guided meditation,” Rainbow Pammy said.
“It’s stories like this that completely affirm why I do this and why I must continue. To know that I can make such a difference to a child’s life makes my heart burst with joy.”
