Our First CD is Here!
‘Shining Rainbow Hands’, is a labor of love for us at ‘Heart Sounds Yoga’. As a yoga teacher/trainer for children and families, I have been inspired by the childrens camp; teens in my classes as well as by the love of music. During classes they enjoyed chanting mantras and other yoga songs and would sometimes break out in ‘song’, for example, when I used the singing bowl. In a group, they would remember a song or mantra and would sing it spontaneously before a class, walking out of
the class or on their own. I observed that they were totally taken by the sound/music and uplifted into a joyful place of love.
These interactive sing-along songs for children, accompanied by the children’s story, “All the Colors of Your Hands’ are dedicated to the Rainbow People, the original people of the Earth, who lived in purity, love and joy many, many eons ago. These catchy and lively songs awaken the hearts of children and adults.
This music CD is a good accompaniment to children’s music camp; story telling circles, yoga birthday parties and family yoga. It also complements children’s yoga teacher training with ‘Heart Sounds Yoga’.

Benefits of Yoga for Kids
Because kids are growing it is especially helpful for them to develop their flexibility, mobility and strengthen all their muscles and joints of the body.
Yoga helps kids learn the correct posture in overall but also what posture their body has. This will help them in their balance and coordination as well.
A nice thing about yoga is there are many movements and exercises that provide improvement in small and gross motor skills.
A big part of yoga is the breath. We help show children what they can do and feel with the power of their own breath. This helps their lung capacity, heart function and oxygen intake.
Improves the body
The kids (and adults) immune and lymphatic systems become strengthened as they are 'worked out'.
Because Yoga is a slower paced exercise it can help balance one's mind, moods and emotions.
Aids Focus and Concentration
The title explains it pretty well. In yoga you should be thinking about your body and how it is responding to the movements. This helps focus the mind on the body which can help with concentration and commitment to school, other activities and hobbies.
The more we commit to looking after our own bodies, especially at a young age, the more confident and creative we can be in our daily life.
And last but definitely not least, it helps you be relaxed in your own body, during and after the class. Yoga provides a sense of balance and centeredness and increased energy and vitality. Kids love to run around and have fun after class.
I did children's yoga when I was young. I learned so much about how to breathe properly and how to enjoy simple stretches and how my body reacts to it. I recommend it to everyone, especially kids that have a hard time focusing.
How often do kids say "I love you Teacher"
“My heart is a song that needs to sing.”
Heart Sounds Yoga
This is the story of Darius, an imaginative little boy and his grandmother. This story was created at the same time as the ‘All the Colors of Your Hands’ song. Read it and see what the power of imagination can have.
Here is an exercise for your child to learn about mirroring, connecting to his/her energy and learning yoga poses with you as the mirror.
