During the last school holidays I invited a group of children I teach at a local preschool to join me for a kids yoga class at the Hunter Region Botanic Gardens to do a photo/film shoot.
One of the mamas, Amanda Green from the children’s preschool was our amazing photographer for the day and Tom from Gravity Films was our awesome camera man. I am sure you will agree they have both caught some beautiful moments that really captures the whole lifestyle and essence of what Happy Little Yogis is all about.
When I have spoken to people about Happy Little Yogis in the past I generally focused in on the “yoga” aspect of HLY however to be honest, it’s a whole lifestyle… and it’s more than just “yoga” and what I wanted to get across in this shoot was all over those extra little things that I believe are so important for our children.
When I brainstorm and mind-map HLY (yes I am huge lover of a good mind-map to get all the creative ideas out on paper) these are some of the things that that I believe are so important for children and what HLY is all about:
Yoga: breathing, meditation, movement, stretching, building strength, balance and focus.
Health: whole-foods, holistic health and wellness, cooking, growing your own foods, essential oils, holistic and natural therapies.
Mindfulness: respecting our beautiful Mother Earth, spending time in nature, crystals, gratitude, community, holistic play, creativity, kindness, gardening, caring for animals, recycling, mindful money/spending, minimalism, positivity thinking and affirmations.
HLY has been a huge vision of mine for many years and it keeps evolving and changing in the best way possible… there are so many things I am working on BTS (behind the scenes) and I am so excited to share whats coming next… most of it will be a secret for a little bit longer while I put a few things into place but what I can share now is I have some downloadable kids yoga videos coming very soon so kids can practice yoga with me at home!
This has been a big dream of mine for a long time and I feel like now is (finally) the perfect time to get it out into the world. I can not wait to share this with you soon!
One more thing I’d love to share with you before I sign off is a very generous offer from ‘I AM ME’ affirmation cards for children (cards pictured below).
