We met through working at one of New Zealand’s largest Healthcare organisations. With a like-minded passion for general health, mental and physical wellbeing, we launched mindfulness and yoga initiatives at our workplace in an attempt to teach people how to cope with personal and work related stress and learn how to be at peace in the frantic world that we live in.
We are big advocates for teaching young children the skills of meditation and yoga. Children need Yoga as much as we do. In a modern world of busy parents, school pressures and competitive sports, children need methods to help focus their minds to get the best possible outcomes in their endeavours. The bustling pace of children's lives can have a profound effect on their ability to enjoy the world around them. Yoga can help counter these pressures. When children learn yoga techniques of self-health, relaxation, and inner fulfilment, they can learn to navigate life's challenges with a little more ease. When looking for clean, safe yoga mats for kids to use we realised that there were barely any available. In that moment we realised that something had to be done.
